Morrisons has announced they are to axe 3,000 managerial roles as part of a restructure to create more shop floor positions.
The supermarket giant is to have around 4,000 more employees in the move that will see 7,000 new hourly paid positions.
David Lepley, Morrisons group retail director said, “This proposal means more frontline colleagues improving product availability and helping customers.
“Whilst there will be a short period of uncertainty for some managers affected by these proposals, we will be supporting them through this process and there are jobs available for everybody who wants to continue to work at Morrisons.
“There will also be more roles with greater flexibility that are very attractive to colleagues with families.”
