Job losses at Hugh Symons

Job losses at Hugh Symons

Hugh Symons Communications has entered into consultation with its workforce which could lead to 17 redundancies.

Staff were delivered the news earlier this week after the distributor carried out an internal restructuring exercise.

The cuts, which Mobile understands are predominantly in the sales, marketing and field teams, come in what is an increasingly volatile part of the industry.

One staffer, who didn’t want to be named, said: ‘Staff morale is now non-existent.’

Business manager Bob Sweetlove said: ‘HSC has carried out an internal restructure to align more clearly with the business’s strategy to focus on a mobile communications solutions-based proposition.

‘It is also important to maintain a cost base that is affordable in a volatile trading environment.

‘It is crucial for the market-leading airtime distributor to provide both a safe pair of hands for dealers' commission cheques, whilst also evolving the business in line with network policy and technological advancements.’
