It also said that its sales for the whole year barely went up and that its income before taxes went down.
The company has two places in Britain where it is based. The UK head office of Vodafone is in Reading, while the group office is in Paddington, London.
Vodafone has already told people in Germany and Italy about its plans to cut jobs.
Ms. Della Valle, who became the new CEO of Vodafone in January, said: “To consistently deliver, Vodafone must change.
“My priorities are customers, simplicity and growth. We will simplify our organization, cutting out complexity to regain our competitiveness.”
It cut jobs after stating that its full-year sales went up by a small amount to €45.7 billion (£39.7 billion) but that its pre-tax profits went down.
It also said revenue would be “broadly flat” for the current financial year.
Nick Read, who used to be CEO of Vodafone, quit in December because he was worried about how well the company was doing.
He had said that the telecoms company would cut costs by about €1 billion and that job cuts were expected.
