Ted Baker to axe 100 head office roles in bid to cut costs

Ted Baker HQ, The Ugly Brown Building

Ted Baker is restructuring its head office team in a bid to drive cost efficiencies after “a very challenging year”.

The fashion retailer’s head office restructure, which has been launched in a bid to “simplify and de-layer the group’s organizational structure”, will result in 102 roles being made redundant and a further 58 vacancies being removed from the business.

The move, which has been made following a cost base review conducted by Alix Partners, is expected to save the retailer £5m in its current financial year and £7m on an annualized basis.

One-off costs of £2.7m will be incurred as a result of the restructure.
