More of the same
Surely this purchase is an exact duplication of the purchase of TNS in Oswestry and so will likewise be renamed BT iNet (what a crap name). So do we now expect a nice range of job cuts and merging of duplicated roles? Yet another business that makes a lot of money doing nothing more than buying something and selling it again and nobody cares about the 100-200% markup. Meanwhile those of us in manufacturing have to fight tooth and nail to keep jobs from being poached while working with margins as low as 10%.
Likewise why does a guy who rings people all day to sell/buy stuff get 30k and the systems helpdesk job I can see advertised down the left of this page get 12-15k, when he needs a qualification and chatting barely requires a GCSE?
