Hundreds of jobs at risk as Boots commences restructure

Between 300 and 350 jobs are at risk at Boots as the company announced they are looking to restructure parts of its head office.
The firm says the restructure will “reduce decision-making time and complexity as well as improve efficiency.”
In a statement to the press Boots said: “Like all retailers, we are operating in a new environment in which customers need us to move much faster and recognise that they want to shop differently.
“Boots has a powerful brand presence, 63,000 amazing colleagues, and the trust and loyalty of the people who shop with us across all our channels. These things make us very strong, but not immune to change, and the change we announce today will help assure the long-term future of this remarkable 170 year-old company.
“The vast majority of head office roles will be unaffected, and we intend to make sure that the number of people concerned is minimised through redeployment, natural attrition, flexible working and other measures.”
A 45 day consultation period will commence immediately.
