Roddons say staffing review under way but direct labour force will definitely stay
SOME staff at Roddons Housing Association could lose their jobs as part of a “periodic review” now being undertaken by parent group Circle Anglia.
But the association revealed today that a key decision to retain its direct labour force based in March has been made.
“We are now planning how this service will operate in the future and discussing with staff, residents and other key stakeholders,” said a spokesman.
Up to half the 100 staff transferred in November 2007 from Fenland Council to Roddons Housing Association work in maintenance and repairs and are thought to be among those being consulted about possible changes.
The spokesman said: “Since joining Circle Housing Group in November 2007, Roddons has continued to grow and be successful in providing high quality services to its customers.

The spokesman said it was “a standard consultation process to enable to all stakeholders to give their views.”
