Rolls Royce to cut 378 UK jobs


Cuts follow a decision to close a defence facility

Article comments

Rolls Royce aerospace is to cut 378 jobs in the UK following a decision to close a defence operations facility at Ansty, near Coventry.

The company said in a statement that only the defence component of the site, which employs 800 staff, is to close. It also has civil aviation operations which will not be affected. The move is a response to an internal review conducted by Rolls Royce in Ansty and Bristol.

While declining to elaborate further on the decision to close the facility, a spokesperson for Rolls Royce said, “We are in consultation with trade unions over reductions in our defence workforce at Ansty. We hope to achieve this without compulsory redundancies.”

However, in an email to local MP Geoffrey Robinson released by him, the company said it proposed to “progressively run down Defence Services work carried out at Ansty by a combination of natural termination of legacy programmes or re-location of on-going work to other facilities. This is expected to take a number of years.”
