City agencies feel the pinch

City agencies Pelham PR and Tulchan Communications have made significant job cuts as the economic down­turn hits City PR in earnest.

Pelham has made five roles redundant, including three associate directors, as it res­tructures its seven business practices into three core teams – res­ources, corporate and ­retail and generalist.

Pelham founder James Henderson said the move was triggered in part by tough economic conditions, but also by a change in the strategic dir­ection of the business.

Tulchan Communications is cutting a ‘single figure’ number from its 40 staff.

Both firms have been hit by a dearth of deal-related project briefs.
