A Vodafone spokesperson has confirmed that the company is carrying out a restructuring of its sales team in New Zealand.
However, as to a suggestion on Australian website ZDNet that up to 20 positions may go, Vodafone's head of company communications, Alison Sykora, says “I don’t know where they got that number from – we don’t have a number yet, it depends on how the restructure works”.
The exercise involves “re-looking at the business to make sure we’re at the right place and have the right structure”, she says.
“It involves looking at the structure as well as the headcount.”
Sykora declined to say when the restructure would be complete, but said “our priority is working with the people going through the process – first and foremost, we need to communicate with the people involved.”
