British telecommunications giant Vodafone is to axe 121 jobs as it closes down its Burton offices.
The firm said it was hoping that other positions would be created elsewhere for those who are likely to be let go, as it will replace the Burton branch with ‘centres of customer excellence' across the UK.
CWW had offered access to business telecoms services through a combination of fibre, digital microwave radio and leased circuits.
In a statement sent to Computing, a Vodafone spokesperson said that the review was undertaken as part of the post-acquisition integration process.
"The review recommended investing our resources in creating a smaller number of state-of-the-art, specialist ‘Centres of Excellence', focused on customer services and technology," the spokesperson explained.
"These centres will bring people and skills together in the same locations - in new and refurbished buildings - so they can work better to provide the highest level of service for our customers. As part of this review, we propose to close our Burton building by March 2015".
The new centres will be based in Glasgow, Manchester, Stoke and Newark. Vodafone's technology hubs will be based in Birmingham, Bracknell, Glasgow, Manchester and Newbury.
