Omnichannel retailer New Look is placing over 70 jobs at risk at its London and Weymouth head offices.

The company currently employs 1,200 people across its two head offices, with those being affected by the redundancy process entering a consultation period.

According to the retailer, its main “priority” is to support those impacted by the decision.

A spokesperson for New Look told InternetRetailing: “New Look has changed significantly in recent years, having accelerated our ecommerce business and reduced our store estate. As such, we have reviewed our operating model and structures, and we are making certain changes to our ways of working, to better reflect and support the growth of our omnichannel business.

“As part of this, we are proposing changes to our team structures, which regrettably, we expect to impact some roles at our Weymouth and London support centres. We will shortly be entering a consultation period with affected colleagues and our priority is to support them during this time.”

The news comes soon after New Look announced it will be putting 500 jobs at risk at its lead distribution centre in Lymedale, Newcastle Under Lyme.
