Rolls-Royce to cut 3,000 jobs in UK - report

Rolls-Royce plc will slash 3,000 jobs across the United Kingdom, BBC reported on Wednesday.

The job cuts are part of previously announced cost-cutting measures taken by the engineering giant, faced with consequences of a drastic drop in air travel amid COVID-19 pandemic. Earlier in the month, Rolls-Royce said it would reduce the workforce by more than 9,000.

Rolls Royce employs around 52,000 people worldwide. Among the 3,000 cuts in the UK, most will concern facilities in the company's base in Derby, where 1,500 jobs will be axed.
