Social media giant TikTok is to cut several hundred jobs globally, with a proportion of the redundancies affecting staff at its headquarters in Dublin.

The total number of redundancies in Ireland as part of the global restructuring is unclear as the process must go through the required consultation.

 There are currently around 3,000 staff working for TikTok in Ireland.

A spokesman for the social media company said: ‘Our priority is supporting affected employees through this transition to minimise the impact of the changes’. Ireland remains an important base for us and we’re continuing to hire for roles across our business here’ (Pic: Getty Images)

A spokesman for the social media company said: ‘Our priority is supporting affected employees through this transition to minimise the impact of the changes. Ireland remains an important base for us and we’re continuing to hire for roles across our business here.’

With 3,000 people currently employed in its Dublin headquarters, the news arrives just a month after TikTok confirmed that 20 Irish-based jobs would be affected by the reorganisation of their business division.

Monday’s announcement will affect those working with TikTok’s training and quality team in the Irish capital.

Despite fears surrounding the future of its Irish staff’s positions, TikTok said that the majority of their workers will be offered different roles with them.

Those working for TikTok in Ireland have played a major role in crafting the company’s ‘Project Clover’ plan, which stores users’ information in Dublin and in Norway.
