Dutch IBM arm cuts 240 jobs: FD

The Dutch arm of IBM is cutting its 4,200-strong workforce by 240 jobs, the Financieele Dagblad reports on Thursday, quoting company sources.

The job cuts, which will affect temporary and contract staff, are part of the company’s Road Map 2015 programme which involves shifting work to India, the paper says.
Last week the FD reported that thousands of Dutch IT jobs are being lost through cutbacks and a shift to low-cost countries.
