Thomson Reuters is slashing jobs

Thomson Reuters will cut 2,000 jobs from its global workforce but none of these redundancies are likely to affect newsroom numbers.

The financial news and data organisation believes the move will “simplify and streamline” operations and will mostly affect two groups, financial and risk, and enterprise, technology and operations.

Chief executive Jim Smith told staff in an email that the organisations is “taking these actions now because we see a real opportunity to break down internal silos, position ourselves closer to customers and become more agile.”
