Two journalists have lost their jobs and a number of other roles are at risk as a result of changes at Trinity Mirror’s West Midlands operation.
It can now be revealed that four journalists and one member of commercial staff were placed at risk of redundancy as a result of the announcement.
Two of the journalists and the commercial staff member have since been found other roles, but the other two journalists have left the company.
In a separate announcement made last week, 11 sales roles at Trinity Mirror in Birmingham have been placed at risk, although some new roles are also being created.
It is understood that the latest announcement is not directly connected to the Business Daily closure.
A Trinity Mirror spokesman said: The restructure is in response to the continuing commercial challenges to the business – and the changing needs of our customers.
“In addition, the acceleration of our digital revenue ambitions needs to be supported by a commercial structure which is fit for purpose.
“While we are creating a number of new advertising roles, eleven positions are now at risk of redundancy.
“We are in consultation with affected staff and hope to achieve as many of these redundancies by voluntary means and non-replacement of vacant roles.”
The Business Daily tablet edition was previously available for a monthly subscription of £9.99.
It contained 20 or more pages of business news each day and several journalists were previously assigned to the project.
