Microsoft is planning to make a small number of redundancies as early as this week, reports suggest.

While the exact number is not clear, sources told the Wall Street Journal the plans would affect far fewer employees than the 5,000 Microsoft made redundant at the height of the recession last year, in what was its first ever round of mass job cuts.

The WSJ’s source said the planned round of redundancies is more in keeping with the small staff cuts the software giant has done in the past, and will be spread across the company.

It is not known whether any of the jobs lost will be in the UK.
