Aecom begins redundancy consultation for up to 500 job cuts
Up to 500 jobs are set to go at Aecom as it announced a “re-shaped” to the UK and Ireland business.
A redundancy consultation has now started among the consultant’s 7,000 staff.
A spokesperson for Aecom said: “Over the last months, the global pandemic has heavily impacted many of our clients and competitors, the industries in which we work, and our UK and Ireland business.
“As a result of this we have taken the difficult decision to re-shape our business to better meet the demands of our markets, and help us continue to provide the best services for our clients.
“In support of this restructuring we are beginning a consultation process across the region which may impact up to 500 roles.”
Last month, Arup announced it will cut 350 UK jobs, while Atkins is cutting 280 jobs from its UK infrastructure division.
Keltbray has also announced that 300 workers will be made redundant.
