Just Eat Takeaway to reorganize in Britain, cut 170 jobs globally

AMSTERDAM, Nov 24 (Reuters) – Online meal ordering and delivery company Just Eat Takeaway NV (TKWY.AS) on Thursday announced a reorganization of its customer service operations, which a spokesperson said could lead to 170 job losses globally.

The company said in a statement it would close a customer service center in Borehamwood, England and employees would be offered a chance to work instead in Sunderland, some 300 miles (480 km) to the north.

“We are grateful to all our staff in Borehamwood … and we are committed to fully supporting all affected staff.”

The news was first reported by the Dutch newspaper Het Financieele Dagblad, citing an internal company memo.

The reorganization was essential and would help the company “on the way to profitability”, the paper cited the memo as saying.
