BT slashes jobs in biggest overhaul for decade

BT has launched its most significant overhaul in a decade after revealing 13,000 managerial and administrative job cuts and a plan to leave its historic home - a stone's throw from St Paul's Cathedral in London. BT shares dropped 8 per cent to 220.20p despite the company maintaining its dividend as investors focused on the company's profit warning in Thursday's fourth-quarter results. The Financial Times reported last week that BT would cut thousands of jobs as part of its overhaul. BT kicked off a big review of its business under the name Project Novator in the wake of the Italian accounting scandal that rocked the company in January last year.
