– Cllr Royston Smith, Leader of Southampton City Council
Southampton City Council will do everything it can to support British Gas staff at this very difficult time.
Helping our residents into employment is a top priority for the city, and we are already pulling together a taskforce of council officers with employment and skills expertise and partners including JobCentre Plus and other agencies to respond to today’s news.”
British Gas have announced 550 workers will lose their jobs in Southampton. It is because the company is shutting their call centre in the city.
