Everything Everywhere, the company that runs Orange and T-Mobile in the UK has announced it will reduce its workforce by 7.5%.

The merged mobile phone giant said the majority of the cuts would be made among back office, headquarters and management.

The combined company, which has a 37% share of the UK mobile market, has more than 27 million UK customers.

At the time of the merger, analysts feared there would be job losses due to overlap within the two companies.

Commenting, Tom Alexander, chief executive of Everything Everywhere, said: “We need to ensure that we are operating with maximum efficiency, effectively serving our two brands while removing any unnecessary duplication from the business and, above all, making sure that we are set up to deliver for the future.

“It is therefore regrettable that some roles will need to be removed from our combined business. We will, of course, be doing everything we possibly can to mitigate the personal impact on our people and support them through this process.”
