Deutsche Börse, a group that operates in the financial services sector, has announced that it is to cut 300 jobs in Frankfurt in Germany and in Luxembourg. The group is aiming to achieve a saving of 100 million EUR with the job cuts, and has stated that the job losses will be implemented by 2010. The group’s I.T. and administration departments will be affected by the job cuts, and approximately 200 of the affected jobs will be ‘offshored’ to a site that the group operates in Prague in the Czech Republic. Management at the group have stated that the job losses will be discussed with employee representatives and that the firm intends to implement the restructuring plan in a socially responsible manner. As of November 2007, there is no information on the exact number of jobs that will be lost at the sites in Germany and Luxembourg.
