B&Q cuts 220 jobs

Published:  10 October, 2012

CHANDLERS FORD: More than 200 jobs will be lost at the Hampshire headquarters of DIY chain B&Q.

The redundancies have been announced as part of a 'realignment' of employees at the offices in Chandler's Ford head office.

A year ago B&Q moved its 1200 head office staff into a new building.

The company has also said it has created 100 new head office roles as part of the restructure - but there is still a net loss of 220 jobs.
