Aviva eyes 120 job losses

Insurer Aviva said yesterday it would shed about 120 jobs as it merges its dedicated property claims service into its existing claims centres. The staff affected are based in Sheffield, where Aviva’s Asprea property claims management service is headquartered, the insurer said in an emailed statement yesterday. Aviva is cutting costs and selling under-performing businesses as part of a turnaround strategy launched in July.
