Nokia Siemens is to undergo discussions to cut up to 120 jobs in Finland as the latest in a series of efforts to reduce costs.

The Finnish-German mobile phone maker's Finnish Director Pekka Soini said: "The need for staff reductions stems mainly from our need to adjust operations to the economic environment and market situation in order to secure our competitiveness in the long run," Pekka Soini,

The cuts are likely to take place across the Espoo, Oulu and Raahe units. Just a month ago the group announced a plan to cut 450 jobs in Finland but these cuts come on top of those.

Nokia Siemens has been aiming to cut up to 5,800 jobs worldwide since last November in a bid to improve its financial performance and reduce annual costs by €500 million by the end of 2011.
