The Glasgow-based Herald & Times group has announced it is looking to makes cuts, with between 18 and 20 roles affected.
The company has blamed “substantial weakness” in newspaper advertising revenue for the move.
In April, five long-standing journalists left the Newsquest-owned group in a similar scheme.
Last year a voluntary redundancy scheme was also opened up to all 160 staff at the group’s titles, with around a dozen jobs put at risk.
The move was part of Newsquest’s continued drive to relocate subbing operations to Newport, South Wales.
A statement on the latest round of redundancies has been issued on behalf of group managing editor Tom Thomson.
It reads: “The Herald & Times Group said it is making savings in its editorial department following substantial weakness in newspaper advertising revenue and anticipating continued income challenges ahead.
“The company continues to make good digital progress but has to contain costs to ensure the long-term success of the business.
“The company has advised staff that some 18 to 20 roles are affected and has opened a voluntary redundancy programme.
“The group said it regrets the action is needed but it is determined to maintain the most competitive editorial operation it can based on a cost base it can sustain.”
