Dixons Carphone is to axe 140 jobs across its central functions as CEO Alex Baldock ramps up his transformation plans. The business will strip out 141 roles, the majority of which will be lost at its main head office in Acton.

Additional jobs will also be lost at offices in Poole, Loughborough, Warrington and in Ireland. Dixons Carphone has launched a consultation with 190 staff as part of the proposed changes. It plans to create 47 new roles following that process.
