Over 300 jobs are to go at Boots’ HQ in Beeston and many more workers could be moved to other roles.
One of Nottingham’s biggest employers is making the changes as part of an overhaul of its retail business. As is becoming more apparent, people are now shopping differently with many choosing to buy online rather than from shops. The loss of jobs is always a blow and Anna is assured Boots will conduct a proper consultation, however, she is also assured it is part of a plan to protect the financial future of Boots and keep the business firmly rooted in Beeston.
Anna has written to Seb James, Boots’ Managing Director, requesting a full update on their plans and assurances about the consultation process and efforts to help redundant workers into new jobs.
