Around 30 jobs to go as Northcliffe goes ahead with subbing hubs in Bristol and Swansea

By Jon Slattery

Northcliffe Media has finished its consultation over the introduction of two new centralised subbing hubs in Bristol and Swansea, with nearly 30 jobs set to be lost, HoldtheFrontPage reports today.
The new hubs will cover all the titles in the group’s West and Wales newspaper division, including the Bristol Evening Post, Western Daily Press, South Wales Evening Echo, Gloucester Citizen, Gloucestershire Echo, Western Gazette and Bath Chronicle.
HTFP says Staff have now been told how many people are being made redundant at each centre with the equivalent of 29.3 full-time posts set to be lost overall. The full-time equivalent of 9.3 jobs are being lost in Bath, 5.8 in Cheltenham, 6.6 in Yeovil and 7.6 in Swansea. Four new posts are being created at the new Bristol hub. The new hubs will start on Monday 7 September.
