Business social network LinkedIn has announced it will cut 960 jobs as recruitment has fallen amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The job cuts will be worldwide and affect 6% of the company’s workforce.

LinkedIn, owned by Microsoft, has offices in more than 30 cities around the world. The business employs 16,000 people.

Chief executive Ryan Roslansky said the company was “not immune to the effects of the global pandemic”.

“Our Talent Solutions business continues to be impacted as fewer companies, including ours, need to hire at the same volume they did previously,” he added.
