TalkTalk to cut 580 jobs

Around 580 jobs are to be axed at broadband provider TalkTalk as part of plans to save up to £50m, the company announced today.

TalkTalk, which was spun off from Carphone Warehouse last year, said most of the cuts would affect administration functions, such as human resources, IT and finance.

The job losses account for almost 13pc of TalkTalk's 4,500 UK workforce.
