Orange squeezes out 300 jobs

Bristol call centre closing

Boost IT visibility and business value

Orange has confirmed that 300 jobs in Bristol will go or be moved with the closure of its Keypoint call centre.

Of the 800 people employed at Keypoint, 500 will get jobs in other buildings on the Bristol campus. 300 people will be offered relocation packages and jobs at call centres in Plymouth, North Tyneside and Darlington.

An Orange spokesman said: "We want to do as much as we possibly can to avoid anybody being made redundant and will be offering alternative work locations to those affected.” Presumably redundancy packages will also be on offer for staff unwilling or unable to move so far.

The French-owned mobile firm is beginning consultation with staff over the move. ®
