Curry’s PC World have announced they are to cut 800 jobs in a major overhaul of the business after being hit by the pandemic.
The owner, Dixons Carphone said the overhaul will create a “flatter management structure” as they are adapting to an increase in online sales.
Retail managers, assistant managers and team leader roles will be cut and the company will introduce new sales managers, customer experience manager with operational excellence manager positions.
Chief operating officer, Mark Allsop said, “We remain committed to our stores as part of an omnichannel future, where we offer the best of online and stores to our customers.
“This proposal will ensure in-store roles are focused on giving a seamless customer experience and exceptional service across all our customer channels, whether online or in-store.”Sadly, this proposal means we have now entered into consultation with some of our store colleagues.
“This was not an easy decision and we’ll do everything possible to look after those colleagues we can’t find new roles for, financially and otherwise.”
