The SEK 2 billion cost-saving programme previously announced by Vattenfall is now entering its next phase. A necessary measure to achieve the goal is a reduction in the number of employees and consultants in the staff functions.
In total, approximately 1500 full time positions of employees and consultants are affected: Approximately 600 in Sweden, 600 in Germany, 275 in the Netherlands and 25 in other countries where Vattenfall has operations. The majority of those who work in the staff functions are in Stockholm (Solna), Berlin, Hamburg and Amsterdam. Ongoing efficiency improvement programmes, such as the previously announced outsourcing of certain functions, are included in the planned overall reduction of SEK 2 billion. This to the extent of more than 500 full time positions out of the 1500. Vattenfall has a total of around 20,000 employees, primarily in Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, Finland and in the UK.
