Accenture wins £400m Barclays outsourcing gig

Inherits 900 staff

The outsourcing contract will see 900 bank staff handed over to Accenture under TUPE rules. So jobs and benefits should be safe for two years. No-one appears to be complaining - banking union Unifi says the deal was signed only after tough negotiations.
