SouthEastern trains, a train operating company, has announced that it is to cut 300 jobs. The company employs around 4,000 people, operating rail services in the South East of England. The company has attributed the cuts to a slowdown in passenger journey growth. The jobs will be lost over the coming calendar year, with the first wave of 90 redundancies expected to be complete by May.
