WHSmith jobs at risk

WHSmith is the latest in a long line of retailers to announce possible job cuts following the coronavirus crisis.

The book and stationery retailer, which has multiple stores across the county, has started a consultancy process with head office staff which could lead to around 150 redundancies - about one in five head office staff - as reported by Retail Gazette.

WHSmith has two head offices - one in London and one in Swindon.

Shop floor staff are not affected by the consultation.
