Department store group Debenhams is planning to cut 320 store management jobs as it tries to drive down costs.
The retailer said last month it was stepping up cost-cutting plans after it issued a profit warning because of disappointing trading over Christmas.
Debenhams said a review of its stores had identified “significant cost savings by reducing the complexity of management roles in stores”.
The 320 posts affected account for a quarter of store management roles.
“We are currently consulting with individuals affected and will seek redeployment opportunities where possible,” Debenhams said in a statement.
“We envisage our new structure being fully in place by the end of March.”
