The essential guide to IT transformation

El Reg has had some interesting feedback from readers concerning yesterday's story that UK telecoms group, Energis, is to create more than 100 jobs thanks to increased sales.

That's all well and good, said one insider in an email, but what of the 100 or so people that have recently been made redundant at Energis' Irish operation?

Really? We asked Energis to clarify.

In a statement, Energis said: "We have undertaken a strategic review of our business in Ireland as part of the integration of our operations in Great Britain and Ireland.

"As a result, we anticipate that a number of roles will become redundant across Energis' Irish operations over the next few months.

"This re-structuring process is a necessary step in ensuring that Energis in Ireland remains a successful and sustainable business."

According to this statement, Energis "anticipates" job losses. According to insiders, the axe has already fallen with a round 100 booted out already.

Unfortunately, no one at Energis was available to clear up the details of this at the time of writing.

Energis Ireland was created in January this year after Energis rebranded the Irish telecoms and Internet outfit, nevada tele.com, which it acquired from Viridian Group plc last November.

Energis said that nevada's name change to Energis was a "further step in the integration of its operations in Belfast and Dublin with those of Energis in Great Britain". ®
