An internal memo, leaked to us, spells out the full details of the One2One job cuts announced today.

There will be 915 redundancies against the 900 widely quoted and they will be across the board. These split into: 266 from Commercial and Corporate, 215 from Technology and Information Services , 434 from Customer Services.

The email, sent to all One2One staff, explains: "The Business Review has highlighted a number of changes the organisation will need to take... It was proposed that there would be an overall reduction in the headcount, comprising voluntary redundancy, reduction in temporary and contract staff, natural attrition and compulsory redundancy."

Discussion over which staff will go will take 90 days and "within that period, roles which have been identified for redundancy will be highlighted and communication will begin with those individuals affected, decision reached and implementation commenced".

It ends: "I realise that this has been a period of uncertainty for many within One 2 One but it is my responsibility to ensure the future success of our company and all those involved. We will take every step to accelerate the process while being sensitive to the impact this whole review will have on certain individuals. My commitment is to keep you well informed as we progress towards the Review's conclusion."

The email was sent out by Harris Jones, One2One's managing director. A One2One spokeswoman confirmed the email was genuine. ®
