UK betting firm William Hill announced last week that they're taking a look at 100 digital positions it holds at their three locations, with some employees potentially losing their jobs as a result.
The company is looking into the efficiency of the positions at their Gibraltar, Leeds, and London locations. Those who are found to be in redundant positions may lose their jobs, but the majority will continue on with their normal positions. Some others may be relocated to other positions. In the event some employees lose their jobs, the affected employees will be granted a full support package.
The review was spurred as part of the company's purchase of MRG, which will expand on the company's online reach. Combined with an upcoming fixed-odds betting terminal wagering limits coming to its retail business last year, it's apparent that Hills is working to trim the fat wherever they can.
