  • Ikea is cutting HUNDREDS of jobs in the UK

Ikea is cutting 7,500 office jobs worldwide, including 350 in the United Kingdom, as it focuses on improving its online operation and city centre format in a bid to respond to changing consumer demand.

Ikea now employs 730 staff at its two outlets here - the full-sized store in Ballymun and its order and collection point in Carrickmines, South Dublin.

"As customer behaviours change rapidly, we are investing and developing our business to meet their needs in better and new ways", Brodin said.

A spokesman for Ikea confirmed that the chances will "not impact the majority of co-workers in our stores and distribution units".

Ikea employs 350 people at it's newest store in Exeter which opened earlier this year.

"We need to simplify the way we are organised".

He said Ikea plans to have some small format outlets in India as well and the first truncated version is expected to come up in Mumbai where the world's largest single brand retailer is also hoping to open a large 400,000 sq ft store in Navi Mumbai next year.

Javier Quinones, Ikea UK and Ireland country retail manager, said: "We are in a fast-changing retail environment and while we continue to grow, we are evaluating how we can remain relevant in the eyes of consumers - now and in the future".

Javier Quinones, retail manager for Ikea in the United Kingdom and Ireland, said the company has had to make hard decisions as it adapts.

"We will work closely with all our co-workers to support them during this period of change", she added.

The new jobs will be created at smaller stores, called Touchpoints.

"While the opportunities ahead of us are exciting, we know that some of the changes won't always be easy and in some cases, we will have to make hard decisions".

The chain, which recently opened new stores in Sheffield and Exeter, said it expects to lose 350 jobs at its United Kingdom head office and other supporting units.
