Nokia cuts more jobs in IT restructure

17 JAN 2013

Nokia announced plans to “streamline” its IT organisation, in what was described as “the last anticipated reductions as part of Nokia’s focused strategy announcement of June 2012”.

The company is planning to transfer some responsibilities and up to 820 staff to outsourcing companies HCL Technologies and Tata Consultancy Services.

It also plans to cut its global IT organisation by up to 300 employees.

The majority of the staff affected by the plan are in Nokia’s home country of Finland. It is beginning the process of engaging with employee representatives.

The company said that 10,000 jobs would be lost as part of its June 2012 plan.

Nokia last week guided that its Q4 2012 results – due next week – are set to show some signs of improvement.
