PayPal to cut around 2,500 jobs globally – report



Payments firm PayPal will cut around 2,500 jobs globally this year, Bloomberg News reported on Tuesday citing a letter from CEO Alex Chriss to staff that it reviewed.

In the letter, Mr Chriss said the decision was made to “right-size” the company through both direct cuts and the elimination of open roles throughout the year, according to the report.

PayPal employs around 2,000 people in Ireland.

Asked what impact the cuts will have on its Irish-based workforce, a company spokesperson said it will communicate any changes impacting individual countries by the end of this week.
