Energy giant E.On is set to axe 700 support and management jobs over the next to years in a restructuring move.  

The move is part of the migration of customers to a new platform.

A total of 695 jobs will be affected, out of 3,500, mainly from the firm’s non-customer-facing residential and smaller firms (SME) business.

The new E.On Next platform is due to complete in 2022.

An E.On spokesman said: ‘We have updated colleagues today on plans to continue the transformation of a number of areas in our UK business, primarily our residential and SME supply operation with a small number of roles from our industrial and commercial business.

‘This is not a new announcement – it’s the next level of detail on proposals which have previously been outlined to colleagues.

‘We are migrating npower and E.On customers to our new E.On Next platform and the efficiency improvements mean our residential and SME operation will ultimately be smaller in the future.

‘We will continue to consult fully with trade unions and any reduction in job numbers will be achieved over the course of the next two years, through voluntary means wherever possible.

‘As always, we’ll work with our colleagues to offer help and support, including guiding people to other opportunities within E.On.’

German-owned E.On is the UK’s second largest energy supplier, employing a total of 9,400 workers.
