nPower job cuts necessary to 'keep customer bills low'

Energy giant nPower has confirmed that around a 1000 people in the Midlands are to lose their jobs.

The company plans to outsource much of its consumer service and back office functions. The redundancies - which include 550 at the Stoke-on-Trent office, and 400 at offices in Oldbury - will take place over the next eight months.

nPower's Roger Hattam believes the cuts are necessary to keep customer bills as low as possible.
