Centrica, which owns British Gas and Scottish Gas, has said it will cut 5,000 jobs as the company tries to set a new course amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Centrica said it would strip out three layers of management to slimline the business and cut down on bureaucracy. Around half of the 5,000 lost jobs will be among the company’s leadership, management and corporate staff. It includes half of the 40-strong senior leadership team who will step down by the end of August.
