HR jobs to go at Dixons and Currys’ parent company

HR staff at electrical chains Dixons and Currys could face the axe after its owner DSG said it is to cut office jobs as part of a £20m savings drive.


The firm, which employs more than 40,000 people in the UK and Europe, will not call for compulsory redundancies but will lose posts through staff turnover.


It did not comment on media reports that 1,000 jobs could face the axe.


The firm said it needs to make savings in the 2006-7 financial year in the face of rising costs, which include increasing energy and rental bills.


DSG, which has 2,000 staff at its Hemel Hempstead head office, said 150 jobs would be cut by the outsourcing of its internal IT support operations to a firm with offices in the UK and India.
