Australian telecommunications company Telstra plans to cut jobs at its enterprise unit as part of a strategic review to save 350 million Australian dollars (US$233.4 million).

On Tuesday, May 20, Telstra announced its intention to eliminate 2,800 positions, including roles within the enterprise unit. 

The company aims to streamline its product portfolio, simplify its sales and service structure, and reduce tech-services costs.

The ASX-listed company said the strategic review, initiated in February, will continue, with further updates expected in August.

Telstra also plans to reorganize internal operations by integrating its global business services into other parts of the business.
