Ladies fashion retailer Aurora is outsourcing its IT next month with 48 workers transferring to the contract-winning supplier Retail assist.

Aurora, which owns retailers Coast, Karen Millen, Oasis and Warehouse will consult staff and plans for the outsourcing to take effect in February.

The company said there will be no job losses.

Retail Assist offers shared services to retailers.

Richard Glanville, CFO of Aurora Fashions, said: "This structure not only preserves the benefits of scale of our shared services but secures optimal service levels for all our brands both now and in the future. Importantly, it will be achieved without any job losses."
