Asos has put more jobs at risk after kick-starting a review at its customer care facility in Watford.

The online clothing giant, which placed 100 staff at its London headquarters into consultation earlier this month, could shed a similar number from its Watford operations.

According to The Mail on Sunday, the review is understood to be nearing completion. Its findings could be revealed in Asos’ next trading update, scheduled for later this month.

Details of the deepening jobs cull come seven months after Asos issued a December profit warning, just days before Christmas. Its share price crashed 38% in the aftermath of the shock statement to the stock market.

In April, the etailer revealed that pre-tax profit slumped 87% to £4m in the six months to February 28, despite a 14% uptick in sales to £1.3bn.

Asos boss Nick Beighton said at the time that the business had suffered from “significant disruption and transition costs” associated with a “major capex programme”.

The opening of a new warehouse in Atlanta failed to cope with higher-than-expected demand from US shoppers. Asos said in April those issues had now stabilised.

The group said it was “confident of an improved performance in the second half”.
