The official receiver said: "Arrangements have now been finalised to transfer prison facilities management and defence bases catering and cleaning contracts to new providers and as a result we have been able to safeguard employment for a further 4,418 employees".

But there was bad news too: "Employment could not be secured for a further 59 employees working on paused construction projects and regrettably they will leave the business later this week".

More than 4,400 staff who worked for collapsed government contractor Carillion will keep their jobs, the Insolvency Service has said, after new companies were found to provide prison maintenance and services for military bases.

Game's Spanish arm has also entered into a loan agreement with Sports Direct for facilities of up to £55 million on an unsecured basis.

In total, to date 6,668 jobs have been saved and 989 jobs have been made redundant through the liquidation, says the Insolvency Service. "Those who have lost their jobs will be able to find support through Jobcentre Plus' Rapid Response Service and are also entitled to make a claim for statutory redundancy payments".

Carillion collapsed last month after accruing debts of £1.3bn, with a pension deficit estimated to reach up to £2.6bn.

Thousands more jobs at defunct outsourcing giant Carillion have been saved by transferring a series of contracts to other providers, the Official Receiver has just confirmed.

The firm employed 20,000 people in the United Kingdom and held a variety of public sector contracts ranging from building new hospitals to providing school dinners.

The facilities management contracts which had been run by Carillion in prisons, and agreements to clean barracks and serve food to the armed forces will continue. "I am continuing to engage with staff, elected employee representatives and unions to keep them informed as these arrangements are confirmed".
