Trinity to outsource jobs to India in latest restructure

Trinity Mirror has announced plans to outsource jobs to India as part of a restructure that could see up to 110 jobs go at the publisher.

Those affected include staff in the pre-press and studio departments following proposals for all advert creation to be outsourced to an external provider in India.

Trinity said the changes are expected to be introduced over the next nine months.

The announcement comes after rival publisher Johnston Press announced similar plans to outsource advertising teams to India.

In a statement Trinity said:  

"Trinity Mirror has today announced a restructure of its pre-press and studio departments and proposals for all advert creation to be outsourced to an external provider in India.

“These proposals are expected to result in a reduction of approximately 110 positions across the group and Trinity Mirror has entered into a period of consultation with all affected staff and their representatives.

“It is hoped that as many staff as possible will be retained in the business in alternative roles and that any reduction in staff numbers can be achieved through voluntary means.

“Theses changes are expected to be made over a nine-month period and aim to create the most efficient and cost-effective production model for the business.”
