Vodafone slices marketing team and then some


vodalogo.jpgIf you’re a Vodafone employee and reading this, well, maybe you’re the reason this post is getting made.  Slacker.  All kidding aside, appears as though Vodaphone are cutting over half of their 500-strong marketing team.

Mobile Today reports that the cuts are all part of a restructuring initiative, apparently.  Initiative?  More like overhaul.

“Vodafone last week announced that a further 2,550 full-time jobs are to go as the operator outsources IT applications development to data processing companies EDS and IBM. A further 3,750 contract jobs will go.”
