London - British footwear retailer Clarks is said to have slashed a number of positions at its UK head office on Tuesday as part of the company’s global restructuring strategy.

The redundancies, which are believed to have affected a total of 50 positions, are said to have taken place last week, with an additional 200 roles at both the head office and warehouse still to be at risk. According to reports, more jobs cuts will take place over the next few days across Clark’s departments, including design, finance and HR.

“The Clarks business has worked hard over its 190-year history to establish and maintain a brand with a global reputation for responsibility, integrity and care,” said a spokeswoman to Fashionmag on the rumours. “Like all large global businesses, Clarks continuously examines ways in which to improve its customer experience and operational efficiency, to ensure it remains a world class provider of quality footwear.” She declined to further elaborate on the redundancies.

News of the job cuts comes not long after the footwear retailer revealed plans to unroll a new online platform and double its sourcing from India over the next 3 to 5 years as 10 percent of its global demand stems from the country.
