Primark to axe hundreds of jobs – major fashion retailer forced to act as sales plunge


The chain, which has 190 stores in the UK, is looking to make efficiencies in the management structures across its estate. It comes as the retailer reported a hit to sales due to fears over the Omicron variant over the Christmas period.

Kari Rodgers, Primark retail director for the UK, said: “The changes we’re proposing will deliver a simplified and more consistent management structure across all of our stores, provide more opportunities for career progression and offer greater flexibility, all of which are designed to help us provide the best possible experience for both our customers and our colleagues.

“We are now focused on supporting our colleagues who are affected by these proposed changes and will be going through the consultation process.”
