Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) is looking to scale back its operations which according to union leaders could see 1,100 roles lost.

Based in Preston Technology Park off Marsh Lane, Riversway, the firm has not said how many jobs are going at each location in the UK.

A spokeswoman for CSC said: “In order to align skills and resources to the demands of the market, we are continuing to restructure parts of our UK organisation.
“As a result, we have identified a number of roles that potentially will be removed from the business.

” We have opened a Voluntary Redundancy programme in some areas of our business and there will also be opportunities for employees to reskill, with the potential of joining other areas of CSC’s UK business.”

She continued to say there was no information regarding individual locations at this stage.

The group also has offices in London, Leeds, Aldershot, Banbury, Chesterfield and Chorley.

Regional officer at Unite union Mike Eatwell told InsiderMedia: “You cannot remove this number of jobs and not seriously undermine frontline deliveries, whatever the product or service being provided.

“Some of the accounts affected impact on the smooth-running of the NHS and can only worsen healthcare services, given that many of them are under strain at present. This is particularly worrying.”
