Diageo to axe over 100 Irish jobs

More than 100 jobs are set to go in Ireland as part of Diageo’s global restructuring programme.

The drinks giant, which owns the Guinness brand, has said 95 jobs will be axed at the company’s Dublin headquarters at St James’ Gate, with a further 12 positions getting cut in the North.

The lay-offs are aimed at improving efficiency and reducing costs.

Diageo hopes to carry out the cuts through a voluntary redundancy programme after completing a three-month consultation period with staff.
