Redundancy tracker: UK job losses and job cuts

NOTE: This page is no longer being updated. Last entry 29 April 2010

On this page you will find the Personnel Today redundancy tracker which gives an idea as to how many redundancies there have been across the UK jobs market during the recession.

This page lists major firms that have made employees redundant or gone into administration, resulting in confirmed UK job losses. The figures are based on stories reported on Personneltoday.com and by national media since September 2008.

To help us keep this tracker as up to date as possible, please send us details of any redundancies affecting UK employees that we might have missed by email to: mike.berry@rbi.co.uk  

Total employees made redundant since September 2008: 233,918
The map below plots many of the major job cuts, where the location is specific.
