Just Eat Takeaway is to reorganise its customer service operations, which could lead to 180 job losses globally.

The Times reports the delivery company is to close a customer service centre in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, to help the company on its way to profitability.

Affected staff would be offered a chance to work in Sunderland – 260 miles away by car.

“We are grateful to all our staff in Borehamwood … and we are committed to fully supporting all affected staff,” Just Eat said.

The company is in the process of selling Just Eat’s 33 per cent stake in iFood, a Brazilian business, to Prosus, a technology investor, for up to €1.8 billion in a move that will bolster its balance sheet.
