Bosses at retailer Wilko have said they are putting a number of roles in Head Office, Supply Chain and Retail departments under consultation at their Worksop base.

The consultation is likely lead to job cuts just before Christmas.

Wilko has not yet commented on how many jobs are under consultation.

A spokesperson for Wilko’s said, “This ongoing programme is essential to maintaining Wilko’s unique place as a modern, national retailer.

“We have to ensure we have the right people in the right places to keep the business moving forward. New technologies, processes and ways of working have led us to identify certain posts which are no longer appropriate to our focus on variety, value, choice, quality and customer service.”

“The company says the business remains financially robust in a challenging trading environment.”

“The proposed changes will allow it to react quickly in the fast moving retail environment by ensuring its structures and cost base are in line with its trading performance and the market place.”

If you are one of these people who are going to be affected by the consultations the Guardian would like to hear from you.
