Investors in troubled construction giant Carillion can breathe a sigh of relief today as the company's share price has finally clawed back some ground.

Shares in the company rose more than 10 per cent at the market open after it announced HSBC had been picked as joint financial adviser and corporate broker, but there's still a bumpy road ahead.

The construction and support services firm has worked on projects including London's Tate Modern gallery and the Twickenham rugby stadium, and it employs 50,000 people around the world.
