Telstra axes 110 staff from Sensis

Telstra has cut 110 jobs from its Sensis business.

Those affected are mostly in the sales arm of Yellow Pages, with some jobs also to go from corporate support functions.

They will leave the business by February 3.

The redundancies come as a result of the introduction of self-service tools, electronic processing and value packages that enable Yellow Pages customers to manage their own advertising.

Sensis spokesperson Damian Glass said: “It’s never a good time for job losses and these decisions are always a last resort. However, these changes are a critical part of our program to maintain and build market leading customer solutions. We are focused on supporting the people impacted and will provide them with generous redundancy provisions as well as access to redeployment and job search programs.”
