The agency has entered into a redundancy consultation process with staff across the agency.

Porter Novelli UK MD Jean Wyllie said: ‘The redundancies are not in relation to client losses but from clients experiencing budget changes. Some of our clients have had a challenging year and the shape of their businesses is changing.'

Wyllie declined to say ­exactly how many staff would be made redundant.

PRWeek revealed earlier this year that Wyllie was leaving the agency without a job to go to (PRWeek, 9 September)
