Several hundred jobs at TV Licensing are at risk of redundancy due to plans to relocate work away from Bristol.
Capita said it was proposing to move 350 jobs from its office in the city to Darwen in Lancashire and India.
“As part of a comprehensive review undertaken as part of the bid procurement for the TV Licensing contract, Capita has concluded that a revised delivery model is necessary to meet the demands of the contract in the future,” a Capita spokesman said.
“As part of that we are proposing to optimise our current structure and relocate work from the existing Capita office in Bristol to other UK locations. This means that around 350 roles in Bristol are ‘at risk’ of redundancy, although an office will be retained in Bristol.
“We will now commence a formal consultation period with employees and their nominated trade union representatives to ensure that all possible options are explored.”
