Vodafone cuts 375 jobs, including IT

IT jobs hit as rumoured cuts go ahead

Vodafone is cutting 375 jobs, primarily in back office functions, starting this month. The news follows several days of speculative reports that layoffs were ahead.

A spokesperson for the mobile phone giant said that roles such as IT, HR and marketing will be affected across its main offices in the UK.

Vodafone has bases in Banbury, Newark, Newbury, Stoke-on-Trent, Trowbridge, Warrington.

However, the company also said that it will hire 170 people in customer facing roles, and take on 50 graduate applicants to its UK graduate programme to start in September.

"These graduates will work across all the functions, starting in a customer facing role," a Vodafone spokesperson said.

Cheshire Building Society awarded Vodafone UK a contract to provide a new communications network and virtual contact centre solution last month.

Vodafone was also one of the accounts affected by the recent strikes at Fujitsu.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
