300 jobs at risk as Orange closes Bristol call     centre

Orange is closing a Bristol call centre at a risk 300 jobs, as it looks to consolidate.

300 members of staff have been offered relocation packages to move to Plymouth or Darlington. Those who are not willing to move will be offered redundancy packages.

Staff were told by union representatives from the Commercial Workers Union this morning (13 January).

Orange started a review of its operations in Bristol last October. It employs 2,500 people in city where it has its headquarters.

An Orange spokesperson said: 'As part of our strategy to improve, grow and evolve the company, we are continually looking at ways to ensure we are operating in the most efficient way. As such, we have been reviewing our building strategy and are proposing not to renew the lease for “Keypoint”, one building on our seven-offices campus in Bristol. 

'The affected staff will be relocated to other Orange buildings in Bristol, relevant to the division of the business they work for. However, with no other Service operation in Bristol, staff from that division will be offered an opportunity to apply for work and a relocation package in our other Service centres across the UK. For those Service employees who do not wish to seek roles elsewhere in the business, redundancy packages will be available and employees will receive full support in finding alternative work.

'From today our collective consultation will begin to discuss this in more detail with all affected staff. There are no other Orange employees affected by this decision.'
