Telstra cutting dead management wood

Upto 330 staff may lose jobs

Telstra is conducting a review of its management structure that could reportedly see up to 330 senior staff lose their jobs - many of whom are believed to be on six-figure salaries.

"These changes are about making our business simpler, removing duplication and increasing the speed of decision-making," Telstra said in a company statement. "All of the changes are intended to make processes simpler for our front-line staff, enabling them to make things happen faster and serve customers better."

It is believed the layoffs will come into effect in the near future as part of CEO David Thodey’s ongoing reorganisation of the telco.

The news comes on the back of ongoing waves of redundancies within Telstra's workforce. In late April the telco confirmed union claims it was discussing cutting around 900 jobs over the coming year, although at that stage the idea was just a proposal.

Under former chief executive, Sol Trujillo, the telco cut many thousands of jobs as it streamlined its operations and modernised its technology. Thodey has helmed the telco for more than a year now, but has taken a less aggressive approach to redundancies.

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.

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.
