Pipex rejigs SME sales team

'Overall headcount will not be reduced'

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Pipex is restructuring its SME sales team in Hertfordshire but denied claims that the shake-up would lead to job losses.

A spokesman for the broadband ISP said that those affected by the changes would be offered other jobs in the company with most of them at its Welwyn office. However, he admitted that some of the jobs could be based at other Pipex locations.

He denied claims made by insiders that as many as 25 people could lose their job as part of the move.

"The overall headcount will not be reduced," he told us.

In October, Pipex bought Freedom to Surf (F2S) for £10m, taking the total number of broadband users to 250,000 and giving it enough clusters of users in urban areas to make investment in LLU commercially viable. In April, Pipex shelled out £5.9m to acquire web host outfit Donhost Ltd, while last year it acquired another web hosting operation, Host Europe, and also broadband ISP Nildram. ®
