KnowledgePool Limited - the former Fujitsu-owned training outfit that recently went titsup - axed 30 jobs last week as administrators continued to find a buyer.

The job losses hit staff in KnowledgePool's UK offices in Bracknell, Brighton and Stockport.

And unless a buyer for the business can be found soon, the administrators cannot rule out more job losses in the future.

Staff at KnowledgePool's offices in Bracknell, Brighton and Stockport were told of the job losses last Thursday.

One insider told The Register of the dismay among workers concerning the collapse of the company.

Another claimed that staff at the top and bottom of the organisation in Brighton had been "topped and tailed" to pave the way for a quick sale of the office to a competitor.

This was denied by a spokeswoman for the administrators who said they were still "confident of selling the business as a whole".

Asked whether any more job cuts were on the horizon she said: "If we sell the sell the business we won't need any more redundancies."

Last week The Register reported how the demise of KnowledgePool has left long-serving staff without their full redundancy pay-out. ®
