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.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
