Up to ten editorial roles are under threat across four Newquest sister titles in a fresh round of cutbacks.
The cuts are part of an effort to save around £600,000 and bring editorial operations closer together.
The announcement comes just two days after the Sunday Herald revealed a 34.7pc circulation boost for the July to December 2014 period in the latest ABC figures.
The Newsquest-owned group also announced its HeraldScotland.com website had seen its average number of unique monthly users rise from 1.4m to 1.9m.
Tim Blott, group managing director, said: “We are working with all of our staff to support them through these changes.
“As reader habits and expectations are changing in our marketplace, we are re-aligning our internal processes, equipment and talent to meet this demand.
Tim, pictured above left, added: “We have been investing in new talent and roles where requirements and audiences are growing, but it is also necessary for us to reduce certain functions in our back-office and editorial departments.
“The consultation on redundancy disclosed to staff is being conducted in full and very close review with the NUJ.”
