Vodafone Ireland have been reported in the Irish News papers that they poised to shed up to 500 jobs in Ireland. The company is currently performing an ongoing internal audit, which will likely lead to job cuts. These results aren’t expected until mid to late January 2007.
Vodafone Ireland has been quoted saying that although job layoffs are a possibility, it won’t be to the extend of what is currently being mentioned by the press. Vodafone employ almost 2,000 staff in Dublin & Dundalk and around the country in their owned retail stores.
This news comes with the rumour that Xerox Ireland are also reviewing their position in Dublin & Ireland.
