Daisy to cut 50 jobs

Telecommunications firm Daisy is to make 50 redundancies across its three of its UK sites.

Daisy Group plcDaisy is based in Nelson and has call centres in Buckinghamshire and Northumberland. Staff will undergo a period of assessment, including psychometric tests and competency-based interviews.

The company employs 1,500 nationwide, but hasn’t decided where the job losses will be.

Andrew Fryatt, managing director of Daisy Operate, said: “We have announced a series of changes to Daisy’s Customer Services division designed to provide more focused support for our customers. "Throughout March we will be running a programme of employee assessment through our customer services division across sites in Nelson, Prudhoe and Loudwater. All those employees affected have been informed, and to manage this process they have been placed ‘at risk’ until the end of the assessments.”
