VIRGIN MEDIA IRELAND may cut up to 65 jobs in the next month.

The company, which provides TV, mobile and broadband services, currently employs around 1,600 people.

In a statement issued this evening, a VMI spokesperson said the company has entered a 30-day consultation period with employees.

“We are entering a new phase of transformation to ensure continued revenue growth.

“This involves making some difficult decisions which will impact a number of roles in the Virgin Media Ireland business.

“It is envisaged that up to 65 roles may potentially be impacted and we have entered a 30-day consultation period with people impacted,” the statement notes.

In 2015, UPC Ireland rebranded as Virgin Media.

The company bought TV3 the same year and the TV station rebranded as Virgin Media Television in 2018.
