Following the announcement Mothercare issued a statement saying: “As part of the ongoing structural review process, Mothercare has reviewed its head office functions and identified opportunities to simplify the structure and decrease the central cost base.
“Following an internal announcement to staff, some of our head office staff will be entering a consultation process that will last 30 days.
“We will be working closely with affected employees to support them through this process. This announcement does not affect store staff.”
The announcement comes after a tough trading period for the retailer, which has seen profits slump and store closures throughout its UK operation. Last autumn Mothercare placed its entire UK business under review after half-year losses of more than £80 million and the departure of chief executive Ben Gordon.
