Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Services group Cambridge Technology Partners is laying off up to 30 staff in the UK and shutting its Reading and Manchester offices.

MD Adrian Carr said he "didn't have enough business" to keep them in work. The company's sole remaining office is in Richmond, Surrey.

Carr believes half of the redundancies will be voluntary. The Reading staff have been offered work at Richmond but Carr thinks some one want to commute.

Novell bought CTP on Monday but the decision to shut offices and cut staff has nothing to do with the deal. Carr says he will be speaking to Novell to see if they can take on his staff. He said there was no employee he wouldn't keep on if he had the business. ®
