Hardware juggernaut Bunnings has denied it is cutting up to 300 jobs, but admits roles will be axed as part of a management review of the company’s back-office workforce.

The Wesfarmers-owned business confirmed on Friday that the review was expected to identify that some support office roles around Australia would no longer be required.

However, the group it was still adding to its 53,000-strong workforce with front-line roles in its stores, and insisted it was intent on minimising any cuts to the back-office through redeployment across its business.

Bunnings was responding to a media report that it was targeting up to 300 redundancies as part of the review.

It said the suggestion of 300 job losses was incorrect.

“Now that we’re on the other side of the most disruptive part of the pandemic we’re reviewing our support centre resourcing to ensure we’re set up for the future,” Bunnings said.

“We periodically review our team resourcing to make sure we have the right skills and capabilities to support our growth strategy.”
