Edinburgh Woollen Mill Group is proposing to make a small number of head office roles redundant, Drapers has learned.
The restructuring will affect a limited number of staff, Drapers understands, with several roles mooted to go while further positions will be created.
EWM Group is currently in consultation with staff members over the changes.
The cuts are thought to relate to overlapping functions across a number of departments including IT, accounting and merchandising.
EWM Group employs around 1,500 people across the Jaeger, Austin and Berwin & Berwin head office.
A spokesman for EWM Group said: “Due to our recent acquisitions, we have taken the decision to merge a very small number of roles across our new brands. We are going through a consultation process to ensure this takes place smoothly.
“We are delighted with the performance of our recent acquisitions, and have committed to invest heavily to ensure they continue to go from strength to strength as we build our position in the luxury fashion market through their brand heritage and commitment to quality.”
In February EWM Group acquired men’s tailoring supplier Berwin & Berwin out of administration.
The business had previously bought Austin Reed, for which Berwin & Berwin was the main supplier, in November 2016.
It bought Jaeger - another business supplied by Berwin & Berwin - in March last year.
