The DIY retailer B&Q has released a statement after announcing that 220 jobs will go at their company head office in Eastleigh, Hampshire.
– Statement from B&Q
The new structure includes many new and different roles and changes to ways of working to ensure that B&Q is building sustainable jobs for the future and planning for growth.
As a result of the new structure, 100 new head office roles are being created but there will be 220 redundancies, and these people are being consulted today.
B&Q is doing everything it can for those people who are affected today including enhanced redundancy packages, which go way beyond statutory requirements.
