Murdo Fraser says it is "reasurring" there will be no job cuts at SSE in Perth
Scottish Conservative MSP Murdo Fraser said it was “reassuring” to hear there won’t be any job losses at SSE’s Perth office but wants to know what Ovo’s future plans are for the workforce there.
The politician, who represents the Mid Scotland and Fife region, was reacting to the news that SSE has sold its energy services department to the Ovo Group but confirmed there will be no job cuts in Perth.
SSE employs around 2,000 staff at its office in Perth.
Commenting on the announcement, Mr Fraser said: “Any change will be worrying for employees, but it’s reassuring to hear that there will be no job losses.
“I look forward to hearing from Ovo concerning what their plans are for the future of the business.
"This is a major employer in Perthshire and it would be good to hear that there will be future investment and more jobs created.”
