Today, AstraZeneca, one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies, has announced that it is planning to cut a further 8,000 jobs across its global operations over the next four years as its targets cost savings of around $1.8 billion.

Having already cut about 12,600 jobs, further job cuts will be made in functions such as sales and marketing, business infrastructure, research and development, and the supply chain.

The group has a number of operations across the UK, including its head office in Macclesfield, Cheshire, and sites in Alderley Park, Loughborough, Bristol, Luton and London. An AstraZeneca spokeswoman said the company had yet to reveal how many UK positions would be affected at these sites.
