Dixons Carphone said it plans to cut 800 jobs as part of efforts to streamline its in-store management.
The Currys PC World owner it was “not an easy decision” but the move would allow a “flatter management structure” as it adapts to rising online sales.
Dixons Carphone had already made redundancies before lockdown, when it closed its Carphone Warehouse stores.
Dixons Carphone chief operating officer Mark Allsop said: “We’ll do everything possible to look after those colleagues we can’t find new roles for, financially and otherwise.”
