The publisher announced on Thursday that up to 78 existing roles could be made redundant and 44 new ones created in a group-wide shake-up that will see the introduction of regional print production teams.
With a formal consultation now in progress, TM says it is unable to confirm which individual roles are at risk.
In addition the editorships of the Staffordshire Newsletter and Leek Post & Times are to be combined into a single role, while the Sunday edition of the Liverpool Echo will no longer have a dedicated editor.
It is not clear at this stage whether any or all of the individuals affected will be leaving the business, as it will be open to them to apply for any of the new roles being created.
However TM has confirmed the departures of two senior editorial executives in its South East division, Marnie Wilson and Mark Miseldine.
Marnie, who is deputy editor-in-chief of Trinity Mirror South East has decided to leave the business after 19 years, while Mark, brands editor of Get Surrey, bows out after 28 years.
Ceri Gould, editor-in-chief of Trinity Mirror South East, said “Marnie leaves with our enormous gratitude and goodwill. She boasts an enviable track record of success in print and digital journalism, building the hugely successful Get Surrey website from scratch as well as maintaining the Surrey Advertiser as the jewel in Trinity Mirror South’s crown. We wish her all the very best with her future projects.”
“Mark has been a stalwart of the Esher and Guildford newsrooms and so many journalists owe him a debt of gratitude for his guidance and support. He has played a vital role in executing our print and digital strategies in the South East. We warmly wish him every success in the future.”
Other changes being introduced as part of the restructure will include the creation of a single county-wide website for Devon, under the Devon Live branding, replacing the existing newspaper companion sites.
Similar changes were introduced last year in Gloucestershire, Cornwall, Somerset, Essex and Kent.
The restructure follows what the company is calling a review of growth opportunities and of its editorial print production practices.
The 44 new roles being created will include 17 specifically focusing on video creation and production.
