Johnston scraps editor and deputy editor roles at Sheffield Telegraph

By andrew

Johnston Press is axing the roles of editor and deputy editor on the Sheffield Telegraph.

The deputy editor role at the Selby Times/Goole Courier is also being scrapped. The move puts three journalists at risk of redundancy.

In a statement the company said:

The NMSY publishing unit has today announced proposed changes to its Editorial Management structure within Sheffield Newspapers and South Yorkshire Newspapers.

As a result it is proposed that the role of Editor – Sheffield Telegraph, Deputy Editor of Sheffield Star and Deputy Editor of the Selby Times/Goole Courier will no longer be required.

These changes will mean a reduction of 3 full time equivalent roles.

Prior to any implementation, management will consult extensively on an individual and collective basis.

We anticipate that this consultation process will be complete by 08th June 2012.

In the event these plans go ahead, the company will endeavour to minimise the impact through re-deployment to alternative positions across Johnston Press and voluntary redundancy.
