Around eight journalists are at believed to be at risk of redundancy under plans for further restructuring at a group of Newsquest titles.
Posts at risk are understood to be a weekly news editor role and a series of production roles, including those managing content at the daily and weekly titles.
It is understood that some of the roles under threat will be replaced with four newly-created content editor positions, along with a group deputy news editor post, meaning an overall headcount reduction of three.
The move comes after six redundancies among photographers and the picture desk at the Wiltshire titles were revealed last month.
Staff photographers were cut from six to two and the picture editor and picture desk assistant roles also disappeared.
Redundancies have also been announced at other Newsquest titles in Oxford, Bournemouth and Berkshire, leading the National Union of Journalists to describe it as “another summer of sackings” by the regional publisher.
The NUJ claimed that seven people were to be made redundant at the Oxford Mail and its sister weeklies, while two photographers’ jobs were at risk at the Bournemouth Echo.
Newsquest is also planning to dissolve its recently acquired production department in Reading, following its purchase of Romanes Media Group, with up to seven roles are thought to be at risk.
Newsquest Wiltshire managing director Chris Moore has so far not responded to a request for a comment.
