Additional Information

On 20 July 2012, regional vocational education centre Zadkine announced it will cut 400 jobs (i.e. 275 full time equivalents) in the coming two years, mainly through non-renewal of temporary staff.

In 2011, the company had already dismissed 200 staff members. Background is budget cuts by the government and a drop in the number of students.

Update, 19 October 2012: Zadkine announced another 150 job cuts on top of the 400 previously announced.
