Tesco could cut up to 15,000 jobs after hard Christmas trading

Tesco Reportedly Plans To Axe 15,000 Jobs Tesco to 'axe up to 15000 jobs and close meat and deli counters'

Tesco now employs more than 324,000 staff, including 210,000 full-time, across 2,646 stores on the UK.

Britain's largest retailer said today that 90 counters will be closed and 9,000 jobs will be impacted by the latest twist in Dave Lewis's turnaround plan for the retailer, amid what it warned was a "challenging" market.

It all comes on the back of a hard Christmas trading period for retailers and intense competition among the major supermarkets.

Over the weekend there was widely reported speculation that Tesco could be on the cusp of making 15,000 workers redundant - equating to 3.4% of its 440,000 global workforce.

Tesco's United Kingdom and Ireland boss Jason Tarry said: 'In our four years of turnaround we've made good progress, but the market is challenging and we need to continually adapt to remain competitive and respond to how customers want to shop.

However, Tesco denied reports that it will overhaul its in-store bakeries, saying that no significant changes are planned this year.

The supermarket said it expected around half of employees affected by the changes could be redeployed to new roles within Tesco.

It intends also to simplify the way it controls stocks of goods, as well as reducing head office numbers and shutting staff canteens in favour of self-service kitchen facilities.

It rebounded into annual net profit previous year on strong sales and restructuring following a net loss of 40 million pounds in 2016/2017, when it was hurt by costs arising from an accounting fiasco.

A Tesco spokesperson said: "We're always looking at ways to run our business more simply and efficiently".

It was just over a year ago that Tesco said it was cutting up to 1,700 management roles in the United Kingdom in order to "simplfy" the business.

Ms Foulkes added: "We will enter into consultation talks with Tesco, where we will examine the business case for their proposed changes".
