Agencies cut more staff

Edelman, Jackie Cooper PR and Cake Group are the latest agencies to cut staff numbers.

Edelman and its Jackie Cooper consumer PR agency are making a total of five ­redundancies. Those to go include a director at Edelman’s financial practice, and an ac­c­ount director, acc­ount manager and two acc­ount executives at Jackie Cooper.

Edelman UK CEO Robert Phillips stressed that despite the redundancies taking place over the next few weeks, the agency was in good shape:  ‘This is about right-sizing the business for the next 18 months – it’s a precautionary measure.’

Cake Group has made ‘fewer than five’ junior-level redundancies from its support services division. Managing partner Chris Wood said there were no redundancies in the core PR function.
