76 jobs to go at Cobham
10:35am Friday 8th February 2013 in News
UP to 76 jobs are to go at Cobham at Bournemouth Airport as the company "refocuses" on its core business.
The blow comes just months after the company axed 320 employees - a third of their Christchurch workforce.
Seventy-six redundancies are planned between the Bournemouth Airport site and Cobham's Teeside facility.
Cobham have confirmed 70 of these will be at Bournemouth Airport.
In a statement, the company says: "Cobham today informed its staff that it will cease some non-core activities by its Aviation Services business, and will focus the business on key customers and contracts centred around the UK MoD and other Government and military operations.
"Regretfully, this will result in up to 76 staff redundancies at our Bournemouth and Teesside facilities.
"We will work closely with our people by seeking to redeploy them elsewhere within Cobham, and by providing them assistance with finding alternative employment."
