Another 400 jobs will be cut from Anglo-Swedish pharmaceutical manufacturer Astra Zeneca, the company has announced, with the majority of the redundancies in Södertälje, south of Stockholm. According to the company this is an implementation of the cuts that the company presented in February, when the company announced that 1,100 employees would have to go. “We realized already then that it was administrative personnel and related services that would be affected. Those who are affected in this cut are economists, lawyers, the personnel department, IT-technicians, lab technicians and those types of broad competencies,” said Astra Zeneca’s head of information, Ann-Leena Mikiver to news agency TT.
