Tesco to axe 1,200 head office jobs


Tesco plans to cut 1,200 jobs at its head office as part of a major cost-cutting drive.The UK’s biggest supermarket told staff on Wednesday morning about the cull, which amounts to a quarter of its workforce in Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield.Tesco is in the middle of a turnaround plan under chief executive Dave Lewis.The cuts come after the retailer said last week it would close a call centre in Cardiff at the cost of 1,200 roles.Tesco said it was a “significant next step” in the turnaround of the company.”This new service model will simplify the way we organise ourselves, reduce duplication and cost but also, very importantly, allow us to invest in serving shoppers better,” a spokesperson said.
