“We all operate in a highly competitive and dynamic market and by aligning CSG’s structure and process within our broader business, this helps us prepare for the challenges and opportunities ahead. We will be looking to minimise job losses within this process, which will be unrolled over the weeks ahead. We recognise that these changes will be difficult for colleagues and we will be doing everything we can to fully support those affected,” he added.
