British Gas proposes reduction in roles, implementing strategy

In July 2015, after a wide-ranging strategic review, Centrica announced a Group-wide efficiency programme in order to be competitive in a fast-changing energy market. 

As part of the ongoing implementation of that strategy, British Gas is proposing to make a reduction of about 500 roles.

Mark Hodges, Chief Executive, Energy Supply & Services, UK and Ireland, said:

“We are focused on improving the efficiency and effectiveness of our organisation to meet the changing needs of our customers. British Gas is well positioned to grow, but we must ensure that our costs allow us to be competitive for our customers.

“I recognise that this will be difficult news for the employees who may be affected. However I believe today’s announcement is in the best long-term interests of the business. Our priority is to support all those potentially impacted, and to ensure a fair and transparent consultation process.”
