Insurance company Willis has announced plans to make a further 350 job cuts from its UK operations. The move was announced to staff on 13 April, and is part of the company's 'project Skyline' restructuring plan which aims to move 3,500 jobs to cheaper alternatives including moving London jobs to Ipswich and also outsourcing some jobs to Mumbai, India. The previous round of redundancies was announced in August 2014. The timescale for the loss of the 350 jobs is not yet known.
