Western Union to shift part of jobs from Peterborough to Vilnius

BC, Vilnius, 01.04.2017.Print version
Western Union, a global leader in money transfer services, intends to move part of the jobs to Vilnius from Peterborough, a city in the United Kingdom with a large population of Lithuanian emigrants, informs LETA/BNS.

"This is true, this is part of the unit's expansion in Lithuania," Ilona Zibikiene, spokeswoman for Western Union Processing Lithuania, confirmed.

The plan is to shift up to 50 jobs from England, and they will be first of all offered to the people currently working in the Peterborough bureau.

Peterborough media has reported that Western Union, one of the biggest employer in the city, announced its decision of moving the jobs after UK Prime Minister Theresa May launched Brexit procedures.

The Western Union bureau in Peterborough has staff of about 270 people, while the payroll of the Vilnius bureau is about 1,700.
