Photolink is currently nearing the end of a consultation process that will see it make ‘a handful’ of redundancies within its creative department in Manchester.

The agency, which has offices in both Manchester and Mumbai, works with clients such as Argos, GQ India and Elesse.

Jayne Riley, managing director of Photolink confirmed that the consultation process had a week left to run, explaining that they were looking more towards their creative department in India due to growing client demand there.

“Everyone knows what is happening in the retail market. They are cutting costs and we have to look at our overheads in line with that. Despite this, we have still got over 80 people and we have full order books going forward. What we are doing is looking at what every other business is doing and cutting costs internally,” Riley explained.

“We’ve had a business in India for the last three years and that is growing. It works for the domestic market in India and it works for the UK market too. Rates aren’t what they used to be, and like everyone else, we are looking to keep the business alive and continue to make profits," she added.

A handfull? 25 people leaving is slightly more than a handful.. unless you've big hands of course. And I hear 'the work' they're losing is actually going in-house to Shop Direct, in Liverpool.
