National Express cuts workforce by 5%

Around 5% of the workforce at National Express is expected to be made
redundant to save costs at the rail and bus operators.

The company has said that it is to cut 750 jobs in the next year to try and
claw back £15m a year the BBC reported.

National Express said that it was offering voluntary redundancies first but
could not guarantee that it wouldn’t make compulsory cuts at a later date.

A spokeswoman for the operators has said that they are expecting to lose the
workforce in back office operations and not client facing services.
