Unilever has confirmed it will shed 36 jobs at its Dublin office.

The consumer goods giant announced it would be making operational changes in Ireland in May, a spokesperson for the company told just-food today (5 August). The changes, it said, would result in the elimination of 40 roles at its Citywest office in Dublin.

“Some people affected by the announcement have since found alternative roles within the company and, consequently, 36 people are now confirmed as redundant,” the spokesperson said.

Unilever is progressing a turnaround plan that it believes will improve profitability by reducing overheads and simplifying the business. On one hand, the company is working to strip costs out of the business, while on the other it is selling off less profitable brands in order to boost its product mix profile.

Late last month, Unilever reported a 40 basis point improvement in first-half core operating margins and a 120 basis point improvement in gross margin.
