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.
