Stepstone sacks 40

Shares in bin-liner manufacturers soar

StepStone UK, the online career portal, is to shed 40 staff as part of cost-cutting exercise.

Sixteen people will get the boot as the production department is outsourced to India.

Twenty-four sales staff will be looking for work now that Stepstone has closed its temporary offices in Birmingham and Milton Keynes.

Now, it's clear there are some obvious gags here about a recruitment outfit sacking staff and how they can now make use of Stepstone's services, but El Reg would rather not go down that route. ®
