Eleven Telstra jobs will be cut in Tasmania as part of a nationwide axing of 1400 employees.

The telecommunications company is meeting with the Communications Workers Union on Thursday to provide a brief on the job losses.

Telstra chief executive Andrew Penn sent a note to employees on Wednesday, explaining the restructure.

“I recognise this will be difficult for some but please understand that we must make these changes to ensure we remain a great company in the future,” he said.

“We have a bold plan – to transform our culture, processes and systems to meet current market expectation and succeed in the future marketplace.”

Mr Penn said Telstra was facing an “unprecedented world of technology innovation and digital disruption”.

“I strongly believe we can succeed in this environment, however, to do so we need to transform, urgently. 

“This is particularly the case where these trends are combined with the increased competitive pressures and the accelerated rollout of the NBN.”
