Earlier this week, Everything Everywhere revealed its "plans for growth through network leadership". However, that growth clearly doesn't include staff numbers, because the company has just announced plans to cut around 1200 jobs. Around 7.5% of the 16,000-strong workforce will be departing as a result of duplicated roles following the merger of the Orange and T-Mobile UK networks. Apparently staff that deal directly with customers in shops or call centres won't be affected.
