Watchmoor Park is going to close

The Sun Educational Services training site, at Watchmoor Park in Camberley is going to close. It seems that in another cost cutting exercise, around four million pounds a year will be saved by moving the training operation to the main Sun UK site, just down the road over at Guillemont Park.

Word has it that the move is going to take place in about six weeks, so in the run up to this, gradually things will be moved over there. I think the training will move to one of the existing buildings over there so there will be a bit of a move around. Obviously it'll need to be kept seperate from Sun itself, since training buildings have a lot of non Sun people involved in training courses.

Guillemont Park is nice, in face I would not mind working there - all nice and new, onsite gym, and really nice site and building layout and design. The only thing with working there would be the location, there is not a lot to do around here - I'd probably live in London or on the outskirts.

You may remember that not so long ago the Sale site closed, as far as training was concerned and they moved everything to Watchmoor Park. Now, instead of wasting money on the lease of this building, the entire operation will move onto Sun owned buildings and thus saving the most cash.

It's not official yet, but one hundred percent going to happen. I will prefer going to Guillemont Park in future.

4 million pounds?!? Look rabbit, I don't get mad anymore, watch this.

Sounds like they were a tad bit overstaffed.

Not too many staff - just a huge cost for the lease of the building.

GMP is much better anyway, a good choice and saving a lot of money!
