Capita set to slash thousands of 02 jobs

Adrian Holliday

Capita looks set to sack more than 1,200 call centre staff, terminating leases on 02 sites in Glasgow and Bury, Greater Manchester.

There could also be severe job losses from its Leeds call centre. In total, it's thought Capita may retain well under 50% of all staff following its recent £1.2bn 02 outsourcing deal. However call centres overseas could be boosted. %VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%
