Greene King to axe 100 jobs

Greene King has announced a proposed restructure of its office teams based in Bury St Edmunds and Burton upon Trent.

It is understood in total around 100 roles are at risk across its two head office locations. However, the brewery has said that 25 new roles will be created as part of the proposal.

In its latest financial results to the year ending 29 April, the company saw its pre-tax group profit fall by 11.2% to £243m.

A spokesman for Greene King said: “The industry in which we operate is facing considerable cost pressures, and we are not immune. We need to focus on supporting our pubs and believe the proposed structure will deliver a simpler, more effective way of working and at the same time reduce costs.

“We are working hard to minimise the number of redundancies and are supporting any colleague who is at risk of redundancy by trying to find an alternative role in the business. This decision has not been taken lightly but is necessary to ensure that Greene King is sustainable and fit for the future.”
