Job fears at Hatfield water company

IT jobs at a Hatfield-based water company are under threat.

Veolia Central Water, based in Tamblin Way, on Hatfield Busines Park, announced last week it had appointed consultancy firm Tata – which specialises in outsourcing “non-core” operations to India, China and the Philippines – as it’s IT business partner.

In a company statement, Veolia’s chief information officer Buddy Willard said: “Following a company-wide review of our IT provision we will be appointing an IT business partner to deliver the knowledge and expertise we require to meet our future IT needs.

“I can confirm we have entered into talks with our preferred partner Tata Consultancy Services Limited with the intention of developing a partnering relationship.”

“We are keeping our people fully informed, however until the review is completed we cannot share the exact details of how they may be affected.”
