Fujitsu-Siemens sheds sales jobs

Large enterprise team feels the pinch

Around 20 Fujitsu-Siemens staff face the chop in what the firm is calling a "repositioning" exercise.

The Register's source said the jobs would go from the firm's large enterprise sales group at its Bracknell headquarters, and that they accounted for as much as 20 per cent of the department. A meeting yesterday heard that despite record profits the redundancies would still go ahead.

A Fujitsu-Siemens spokesperson conceeded some UK staff were for the heave-ho, but could not confirm from what areas of the business. He said the cuts would put their operation in a better position in "an ever changing marketplace". ®
