Vodafone To Cut 11,000 Jobs Within 3 Years!!!

Vodafone expects to lay off 11,000 workers over the next three years, affecting its 104,000 staff.

Vodafone CEO, Margherita Della Valle, has emphasized the need for the company to undergo significant changes in order to compete with rivals and enhance the experience for its vast customer base. This restructuring is part of a broader strategy aimed at improving overall performance. The company will be implementing cuts at its corporate office and local markets, including Africa.

In Africa, Vodafone operates in countries such as DR Congo, Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Mozambique, and South Africa. The decision to streamline operations follows Vodafone’s report of a 0.3% increase in full-year revenues to €45.7 billion ($49.8 billion), driven by growth in Africa and increased handset sales.

However, adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization declined by 1.3% to €14.7 billion ($16.02 billion), falling short of the company’s forecast. In response to rising energy costs and inflation, Vodafone had already lowered its annual profit forecast in November 2022 and announced a cost-cutting plan of €1 billion ($1.1 billion) or more, which included job cuts.

In recent times, Vodafone has made workforce reductions in key markets, including the loss of 1,000 jobs in Italy earlier this year and reports suggesting potential job cuts of 1,300 in Germany. Della Valle’s focus is on prioritizing customers, simplifying operations, and driving growth. The impact of these changes is not expected to affect Vodacom, a South African telecom company in which Vodafone holds a majority stake.
