Fashion retailer New Look is expected to make around 70 redundancies after confirming a review of its “operating model and structures” in a bid to support its omnichannel growth.

New Look said it expects the job cuts will be made across its offices in Weymouth and London.

The retailer said the redundancies “in no way reflect the hard work and dedication of anyone who works at our support centres”.

A spokesperson added: “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 announcement comes after reports last month that the fashion retailer could also be making redundancies of more than 500 jobs as its lead distribution centre in Lymedale, Newscastle-under-Lyme.
