BT axes 20 jobs at Dabs.com

Warehouse staff despatched

BT has laid off 20 Dabs.com staff at the e-tailer's Bolton warehouse.

The online electrical retailer told employees about the latest round of job cuts yesterday morning.

A Dabs.com spokesman confirmed it had axed jobs to The Register

"We regularly review our organisation to ensure we are efficiently organised to deliver the best results," he said.

"We are working closely with all staff and advising them of any changes."

BT bought the Lancashire-based retailer back in 2006 as part of a push into the SME market. However, it has never seemed to be a great fit with the telecom giant's mainstream business. ®
