A number of jobs at Liz Earle are expected to go in what the company have described as a ‘review of organisational design’.
Staff were called to a mass meeting recently to be told of the plans. It’s understood that individual meetings will be carried out soon.
Number of jobs at risk uncertain
The number of jobs thought to be at risk have varied from the different people who On The Wight has spoken to, from ‘over 25’ to ‘up to 50’. The spokesperson wouldn’t confirm, but did provide a statement (below).
Earlier this week it was announced that the company wasn’t going to be taking up the option to expand their Ryde operation, by buying land from the council.
