 British multinational engineering company, Rolls-Royce has said it will lay off a total of 9,000 employees due to the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on its business activities.

The number makes up nearly a fifth of its workforce would mainly affect its civil aerospace division with the bulk of the job cuts expected to be in the UK.

Chief Executive of Rolls-Royce, Warren East told the BBC that “This is not a crisis of our making. But it is the crisis that we face and must deal with.”

According to him, the company had not yet concluded on “exactly” where the job losses would be, due to having to consult with unions.

Be that as it may, he said “It’s fair to say that of our civil aerospace business approximately two-thirds of the total employees are in the UK at the moment and that’s probably a good first proxy.”

The company said the impact of the pandemic on the company and the whole of the aviation industry “is unprecedented,” adding that the commercial aerospace market will take several years to return normal.
