Seven journalists are set to lose their jobs as part of a restructure at a regional daily which will see the design and features teams disbanded.
The four-strong design team at the Cambridge News together with three staff in the paper’s features department are facing redundancy under the plans, which will also see one new role created.
HTFP understands staff were told about the restructure two weeks ago, and a month-long consultation period is currently under way.
Owner Trinity Mirror has confirmed that the restructure is taking place, but has declined to comment further on the proposals.
The changes will also see the Cambridge Magazine and Cambridge Business Magazine, which are both currently published monthly by the News as separate glossy magazines, merged into a single print product.
As a result, a lead sub-editor role is being created to take on responsibility for the new magazine.
The last major restructure at the News in June 2016 also saw seven roles put at risk although some new ones were also created.
Trinity Mirror bought the paper as part of its £220m purchase of Local World in October 2015.
The deal included a clause which would have seen the News and a group of sister weeklies sold on to Iliffe Media, which owned them before the creation of LW in 2012, but TM decided to keep the papers and instead pay Iliffe a £2m ‘break fee.’
