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.

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
