Ask Jeeves UK Cuts Sales Staff

Ask Jeeves cuts back UK direct sales department

Search engine Ask Jeeves has cut a number of jobs from its UK sales department as part of a restructuring drive as it prepares to expand into Europe.

But the company said that the loss of seven jobs would not see overall headcount reduced, as it’s actively recruiting in other areas.

Adrian Cox, Ask Jeeves UK CEO, said that the move was in response to the fact that the balance of its revenue had shifted towards paid placement, and it had been considering the cuts for some time.
