IBM set to scale back UK and Ireland operations

IBM has confirmed that it is to scale back operations in the UK and Ireland with a number of redundancies.

In papers seen by The Register, the company is looking to make redundancies within the UK-based strategic outsourcing delivery division, inline with 1,200 global cuts that are also to be made, despite it posting healthy results in the second quarter of 2012.

IBM will begin an employee consultation on August 2nd that will last for 30 days. According to Computerworld UK, the company has said that the change to its staff was a continual consideration for the firm.

An IBM spokesman told the source: "Change is constant in our industry and transformation is a permanent feature of our business model. Consequently, some level of workforce remix is an ongoing part of our business."

It follows a decision in May by IBM to create a Global Services Integration Hub in Ireland which will create 300 new positions.
