Tesco has announced that it is set to cut around 1,200 jobs in Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield.

The supermarket giant – which has its headquarters in Shire Park – announced this morning that 25 per cent of employees at the offices in Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield will lose their jobs.

A Tesco spokesperson said: “Today we have shared with colleagues across Tesco changes that we plan to make to the way we operate our business.

“This is a significant next step to continue the turnaround of the business. This new service model will simplify the way we organise ourselves, reduce duplication and cost but also, very importantly, allow us to invest in serving shoppers better.

“We have made good progress so far in our turnaround but we have more to do. We will work with colleagues to support them as we go through this important transition.”
