News : Jobs Could be At Risk at Ageas in Bournemouth
Buckinghamshire, UK, March 13, 2015 -- Jobs could be at risk at insurance firm Ageas after the company confirmed it was considering making changes at its Bournemouth office.
The insurance firm, based at Castle Lane East, said it was holding discussions with Ageas Retail employees about proposed changes in some of its support functions.
The company would not confirm how many people could be affected but said the changes could put a "small number" of Bournemouth staff at risk of being made redundant.
The firm said this was nothing to do with its proposal to close its Belfast call centre, with the loss of 200 jobs.
A statement provided by the company said: "Ageas Retail confirms that the proposal to close its Belfast location is a consequence of the nature of the operation there and will not impact the Bournemouth office where we remain committed as a major local employer.
"Separately, we are now discussing with Ageas Retail employees proposed changes in some of its support functions that may result in a small number of people being at risk of redundancy in Bournemouth."
A spokesperson for the company said they could not give any further details because the discussions were ongoing.
