Boots to Cut Up to 350 Jobs in Bigger UK Stores

Boots is to cut up to 350 jobs in the UK as the pharmacy chain looks to reduce costs in its larger stores. This is the second round of job cuts at Boots in the last seven months, after an announcement in June last year that the company would cut 700 jobs in offices around the UK. In the latest round of redundancies, the company plans to cut between 300 and 350 assistant store managers at its biggest stores. The latest reduction in the workforce will be achieved through a "combination of natural attrition, redeployment, retraining and redundancy. The cuts are part of a drive to simplify the management structure within stores. Boots also announced that 400 employees working on its customer helplines will move to Teleperformance, which runs customer help centres for companies. The employees will continue to be based at Boots's head offices in Nottingham and retain their pay and benefits.
