SAINSBURY’S is set to cut hundreds of management jobs.
The supermarket said the decision would affect staff in its commercial, retail, finance, digital, technology and human resources departments.
The retailer blamed continued integration of Argos, which it bought in 2016, into the supermarket chain’s stores.
Since March last year, Sainsbury’s has reduced its senior leadership by over 20 per cent.
Mike Coupe, chief executive of Sainsbury’s, told workers today: “We have to adapt to continue to meet the needs of our customers now and in the future and, while change can be hard, it’s also necessary.
“We have a clear purpose and a strong and compelling set of priorities that will support us to deliver for our customers.
“We already have a sense of momentum across the business and can accelerate this by streamlining our structure and responding to customer needs more quickly.
“Truly integrating our business also unlocks efficiencies that we can reinvest in the things that matter most to our customers.
“I’m confident that the changes we’ve announced today will move us forward and deliver a joined-up customer experience across our brands.”
