£26m Boost for Council Services

On Monday over 550 Southampton City Council staff will take up employment with Capita to help transform the level of service that the Council offers its customers.

A ten year contract was signed a few weeks ago with Capita to deliver a range of services including, customer services, HR, IT and property services, over the next ten years.

The new Conservative Council has set a joint goal with Capita to make a saving of at least £48m; £26 million of which is being invested in the services. £33m of this total has been guaranteed by Capita.
