Just 500 jobs out of a workforce of 3,800 look set to be saved after PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC) found buyers for only parts of the firm.PwC said that it had sold parcels of the construction and social house building division to Mansell Construction Services, a subsidiary of Balfour Beatty, saving 381 jobs. The reprieved section is made up of construction operations in Milton Keynes, Gatwick and Heathrow and the social house building businesses based in the South West and North West of England.In a further development, sources close to housing maintenance firm Mears Group, claimed that it was saving more than 100 jobs in the South West.But the majority of the firm’s employees are being made redundant after earlier expressions of interest to buy the whole group collapsed. PwC are retaining a team of 200 people across the group to help wind up the business but these jobs will go once the parent group closes.According to PwC, Rok which built and maintained social housing, was a casualty of public sector cuts and the construction slump. PwC Jeremy Webb joint administrator said: “We are delighted that we have been able to secure a sale of part of the business hence preserving employment for 381 people. “This is tinged with disappointment that there was not sufficient interest in the other parts and hence the redundancies that have been made today.” whatsappcenter_img Share More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.com Video Carousel – cityam_native_carousel – 426 00:00/00:50 LIVERead More Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayUndoMoneyPailShe Was The Dream Girl In The 90s, This Is Her NowMoneyPailUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndoAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteUndoTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.
