Last week, the publisher of Vogue, Vanity Fair and GQ notified some employees in the UK that their jobs were at risk of redundancy as the publisher moves to realign reporting structures and merge brand teams in different regions, according to the Press Gazette. In December, Condé Nast announced that teams at several of its titles would work more closely together across Europe and the UK. As part of that shift, Anna Wintour was named global chief content officer for the publisher, as well as global editorial editor of Vogue, and Edward Enninful was named the European editorial director of Vogue, among other changes that saw several Vogue editors in chief exit the company. More shifts are expected as the publisher implements the next stage of its international merger.
“As we continue to bring together our European business and transform our global operations, we are entering into a collective consultation process to evolve some of our teams, roles and capabilities. We are fully committed to supporting employees during this time,” said a representative for Condé Nast in a statement.
