Shell to slash up to 9,000 jobs worldwide


Shell has said it plans to cut between 7,000 and 9,000 jobs worldwide following a collapse in demand for oil amid the coronavirus pandemic. The oil giant has said the cuts will be fully implemented by the end of 2022. The company also told investors that this includes around 1,500 employees who have agreed to take voluntary redundancy this year. Shell said the job cuts are part of a major cost-cutting programme after the business was hit by the slump in demand for oil and a subsequent dive in prices.
