Kier Group to cut costs with 1,200 job losses

Construction firm Kier Group is to cut 1,200 jobs as part of its plans to simplify the business and save on costs.

The company said on Monday that it had completed a strategic review under new chief executive Andrew Davies which identified ways to generate cash and reduce its debts.

The job losses are the result of the Future Proofing Kier programme, which has been accelerated so that 650 full-time employees will have left by the end of this month.

Another 550 are expected...
