Vodafone UK will tomorrow announce plans to cut hundreds of UK jobs, according to reports on Bloomberg. The cuts will be part of the ongoing cost reduction intended to reduce expenses by a billion pounds over the next 14 months. The cuts, if cuts there are, aren't entirely unexpected - Vodafone has been warning that 2008 figures …
I don't know the full details, but I know some teams are being halved. The workers leave thurs/fri. This is no axe swing...
Does the fact that their service has almost ground to a halt recently mean anything?
Last week, my other half was regularly finding that folk had txted her in the morning and nothing was delivered until well into the evening.
Your call centre is now in India

Anyone want to buy a house...

Oh, and I dropped from an 18 month contract to a 12 month one, how retro.
Someone needs to have a sit down with their call centre staff.
People like you make me ashamed of my nationality.
