VEDANTA MASS MEDIAMore British jobs to go to India
 


            

 

  
             More British jobs to go to India


     London, January 23: Over 600 British jobs may go to Mumbai and Bangalore as two major British companies, Capita and Experian, have decided to cut their employee strength and move work to the two Indian cities.

 

     Nearly 400 Capita workers at Wythall in Birmingham have been told that the site will be closed by the end of the year and their jobs moved to India and other parts of the UK.

 

     Credit checking giant Experian is in the process of axing hundreds of jobs in Britain to cut costs after a dramatic slowdown due to the liquidity crunch.

 

     The company, which employs 15,000 people, is scaling back its IT development workforce in Britain and the US and plans to outsource many of the jobs to India, Chile and Bulgaria.

 

     Chief executive Don Robert said cuts among the 4,000 British staff would number 'less than 1,000'.

Staff at Experian's office in Nottingham were informed last week that 200 jobs at the office would definitely be scrapped.

 

     All of the 200 job cuts will be made from the IT department. The IT section affected is involved in the area of software development. This work is being transferred to Perot Systems in Bangalore.

 

     Capita's decision to cut jobs has angered the employees Union. The union today demanded ''meaningful consultation'' with Capita following confirmation of the closure of Wythall site.

 

     Grahams Goddard, deputy general secretary of the union 'Unite' said ''Unite members in the Wythall capita site face anxiety as their future rests in the balance.

 

     ''Unite is demanding that Capita meet with the union in order to have meaningful consultation about the future of staff in Wythall,'' Goddard said.

 

     The union said it was seeking redeployment opportunities for staff, as well as an investment in the retraining of employees affected by the decision.

 

     ''Unite now has major concerns about the future of the Capita operation in Glasgow, which will also be badly hit as the company press ahead with plans to axe many hundreds of jobs as it transfer the bulk of its customer services to Mumbai,'' Goddard said.

 

     ''Our initial fears of about 1,200 job cuts in the UK following the deal between Capita and Resolution are now being materialised,'' he said.

 

     A Capita spokeswoman said, ''All staff will be encouraged to apply for other roles within the Capita Group and we are currently working with Unite to mitigate potential redundancies.''

 

     The decision to close the site follows the outsourcing of 2,000 UK jobs by Resolution plc to Capita in August 2008.
