Ladbrokes to cut up to 100 jobs at head office

22 May 2013

LADBROKES announced on Tuesday evening that up to 100 employees at the company's headquarters in Harrow could lose their jobs following a partnership with Playtech that led to the creation of Ladbrokes Israel on May 1.
Britain's second-largest bookmaker will switch a number of roles to the newly-established operation which formed part of their agreement with gaming software developer Playtech.
In a statement, Ladbrokes said the new five-year alliance, announced in March and with offices in Tel Aviv, was intended to "accelerate growth in digital business".
The statement added that "in order to maximise its potential a number of key tasks are now set to be transferred to its operation".
It concluded: "As a result of this and the company's ongoing commitment to maximising efficiency, a number of Ladbrokes employees have been placed at risk of redundancy and a 90-day consultation period has begun.
"Ladbrokes envisages that around 100 roles will be affected at the conclusion of the process and appropriate advice and support will be provided to all those affected."
Earlier this month, Ladbrokes announced the departure of customer experience director Stephen Vowles due to the restructure.
