There are those who agree with and those who are convinced to agree with and I fall into neither of those categories ....

Need to read the whole thread before you select random quotes

But this makes interesting reading http://www.theweek.co.uk/90973/carillio ... newsletter My question being if anyone knows the answer is: How can he/they be paid if the company has gone bust. Where will their money come from?
And anyway what is it to do with you if I change my mind? Your first post in the thread is to criticize someone about something you have had no input into. Surprise surprise negative as usual.

That is something perhaps many would say about Brexit also

Well,
If voters didn't get all the facts before voting Remain, that's their problem :D

Not surprising to me as i used to work in a jobcentre plus call centre taking new claims for JSA and IS, Captita had a contract with Jobcentre Plus to contact these new claimants with the details of when they had to go to their local jobcentre for an interview. They're choice was to simply send out text messages to any mobile numbers we were given however these were notoriously unreliable as we got many calls from bemused people asking why they hadn't been contacted with a time and date to go to the jobcentre, we'd check their file and sure enough Captia claimed to have contacted them with a time and date, we'd end up having to re-book it. in the end I told new claimants if possible to only supply a landline no. and explained the issue we were having otherwise i told them to ring us after 48 hours if they hadn't heard anything.

The whole point of Capita having this contract was to lessen the workload for the Jobcentre plus, while I was there they failed miserably.

They are quite different businesses.

Carillion was a building contractor that moved into facilities management.

Capita does 'business processes', i.e it does back office, as in running call centres.

It seems that Capita has a new CEO who doesn't like what he's seen and decided to do something about it. That £700m rights issue should keep them going if nothing else. Had the twonk who was running Carillion done something similar a year ago, Carillion would still be going.

P.S. Of course, as all readers of Private Eye should know, we are supposed to refer to the company as Crapita. :)

I nearly made a joke post that the CIC should be investing in them but never got around to it
