BHS to axe a third of head office jobs and cut store management roles

BHS is to axe around a third of its head office jobs and consolidate store management roles, a day after it proposed a company voluntary arrangement (CVA) in a bid to cut the rent bill on half of its store portfolio.

The department store chain has placed around 150 of its 450 head office roles into consultation this morning.

Drapers understands that the head office was previously 550-strong and 100 positions have already not been replaced.

It will also cut around 220 management roles in stores by consolidating two layers of management into one.

The company currently employs around 8,500 people

  • All SPG focuses on is TopShop/TopMan. The other Arcadia group companies have suffered from the same chronic under investment and lack of attention and will soon go the same way as BHS.

  • Not great for the people losing their jobs, but surely this has been a long time coming? BHS has been a mess for years and years....
