Dixons Carphone to axe 800 store management roles

Dixons Carphone, the owner of Currys PC World, is axing 800 jobs to try and create a ‘flatter management structure’.

The retailer said it has started consulting with staff ahead of the overhaul.

Dixons said that by taking away “business adviser roles in stores without a business hub” it will improve the shopping experience for customers.

The announcement comes four months after the tech company closed all 531 of its Carephone Warehouse stores.

Dixons Carphone 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.

“As part of this, we want to empower our store leadership teams, create a flatter management structure and make it easy for our customers to shop with us, however they choose.

“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.”
