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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
