The future of some of the 5600 employees of Phones 4U is looking a little better, as Dixons Carphone has announced that it will be taking on around 800 Phones 4U staff.
The 800 staff previously worked in some of the Currys and PC world stores owned by Dixons Carphone, where they worked within a Phones 4U store at the Currys and PC World retail locations.
Pleased to confirm we have secured agreement to offer all Phones4U colleagues (circa 800) in [email protected] stores roles

That leaves around 4,800 staff who have an uncertain future, we heard earlier today that EE were looking to purchase some of the Phones 4U stores, which means that those staff would get jobs.
Vodafone are also apparently in talks with the administrators of Phones 4U, although at the moment it is unclear on whether the company is also looking to purchase some of the stores.
