Another redundancy bombshell in Global – a blatant management ‘choice’

No fewer than 11 of the 16 roles that are being made redundant involves work that Global plans to lift and shift to its existing hubs in India and Hungary – with new direct recruitment talking place in those locations even as redundancies are being made in the UK.
