Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Some 300 techie jobs could be axed by Orange in the UK as part of plans to make the mobilephoneco more efficient.

Workers have been told that the company is looking at job cuts but Orange has so far declined to say how many face the chop. However, a PA report puts the number somewhere between 200 and 300 job losses.

In a statement Orange said: "We have announced to staff that we are restructuring the departments that manage our network and technical systems. No customer-facing staff are affected. This restructure is part of an ongoing process, designed to make Orange more efficient in a highly competitive market.

"We would stress that the changes are only proposals at this stage, and we can't confirm how many jobs could go until we've finished consulting all the staff who may be affected." ®
