Rolls-Royce has proposed to cut between 2,000 and 2,500 jobs across its global business in the latest stage of a significant transformation plan.
The aerospace engineering specialist said it aims to become a “simpler, more streamlined, organisation” through the process.
The company, which currently employs 42,000 people, said it also plans to remove “duplication” and deliver cost efficiencies through the shake-up.
Tufan Erginbilgic, chief executive of Rolls-Royce, said: “We are building a Rolls-Royce that is fit for the future.
“That means a more streamlined and efficient organisation that will deliver for our customers, partners and shareholders.
“Our business is full of committed, talented people and I believe these changes will enable them to build greater capability in areas that are key to our long-term success.
“This is another step on our multi-year transformation journey to build a high performing, competitive, resilient and growing Rolls-Royce.”
