Andersen Worldwide cuts 220 UK-based jobs

Andersen Worldwide has axed 220 UK-based jobs, as part of moves to shed 7,000 jobs from its global operation.

An Andersen UK spokesman today told AccountancyAge.com none of the 220 cuts were part of the UK headcount.

But, he added, UK job losses could be imminent, although the firm is refusing to make any further comment.

It is understood the firm has already began the process of reviewing its UK operation.

Earlier this month Andersen, confirmed that almost a quarter of its workforce in the US was to be axed in a process which could last several months.

The majority of cuts will be in the firm’s audit practice and administrative services. Andersen’s Chicago headquarters and its Atlanta, Los Angeles and New York operations are expected to take the heaviest hits, as well as the infamous Houston office.
