Knight Frank employees ‘faced with redundancies’
Many Knight Frank employees in the north-west may be faced with the prospect of redundancy.
Following a review of its operations in Manchester and Liverpool, the estate agent has decided to close its Merseyside base.
Although its other office will remain open, it could be moved to a new location in the city centre.
A total of nine Liverpool staff members and 30 in Manchester are under consultation and they will find out whether they will be made redundant in the coming weeks.
Head of north-west commercial at Knight Frank David Porter said the job losses are regrettable.
“This is a difficult time and we want to ensure that these decisions are made in a sensitive manner,” he added.
It is not only people working at the estate agent that could lose their jobs in Liverpool, as it was recently announced that some positions at the city’s Tate art gallery are under threat.
The BBC reported that the tourist attraction is currently reconsidering the number of front-of-house staff it employs.
Individuals who think they may have a claim under employment law can get advice from the team at Ashtons Legal.
