Around 130 call centre jobs are at risk in Redhill, Surrey, following the buyout of Tiny Computers by Time Computers.

Inkfish supplied technical helpdesk support services for Tiny Computers. But following the PC maker’s buy-out by Time last month the contract to supply tech support is under review.

A decision on whether Time will renew the contract is expected at the end of March.

A spokeswoman for Domestic & General – the domestic appliance breakdown insurance and related services outfit which owns Inkfish - confirmed today that the future of the Tiny account was in doubt and that the company had entered a consultation period with 130 of its staff.

But she said the company "remained optimistic" about the future and insisted that even if the contract was not renewed there was "new business on the horizon". ®
