United Kingdom -Heineken transfer to Poland -December 07, 2013

Almost 100 staff at Heineken UK branches across Lothian are facing redundancy after the beer giant announced plans to shift the bulk of its operations to Poland. The job losses – mainly from the finance departments in Edinburgh and Livingston – are part of a major restructuring process ‘to maintain competitiveness’ that leads to a transfer to the firm’s global shared facilities in Krakow. Heineken UK is said to help redundant staff members find employment elsewhere. Most of the affected workforce is likely to be based in the Livingston office with a smaller number from their Edinburgh HQ being made redundant.
