Royal Mail to axe 3,000 managerial jobs

The
Royal Mail is set to make 3,000 managers redundant as part of the company’s
cost-cutting operation.

The
management cull will affect bosses at the Post Office, Royal Mail and
Parcelforce, and the jobs are expected to go by the end of March. The company
is asking workers to accept voluntary redundancy.

Approximately
30,000 staff in total will lose their jobs as part of the three-year drive for
efficiency and cuts in costs.

The
Royal Mail has already cut around 14,500 jobs since its renewal plan was
launched 18 months ago.

Adam
Crozier, CEO of the Royal Mail, said there was no avoiding the harsh reality
that the organisation had to reduce its overheads and become more efficient to
ensure a successful future.
