Britain’s largest estate and letting agency group, Countrywide is openly having restructure issues with a number of managers allegedly being given notices and possible redundancies.
Estate Agent Today have claimed to receive Tweets and emails from Countrywide staff yesterday, suggesting senior management figures have been targeted.
Chief executive for Countrywide, Alison Platt issued a statement in response to allegations:
“We’re committed to growing our business by building on the position and strengths we have and adding new capability and experience where needed. During this time of organisational change, we are moving at pace so we can get on with driving the business forward and delivering our purpose of bringing people and property together.
“We notified those who will be directly impacted by planned changes and consultations are ongoing as we have more roles to fit within the new structure than we have people at risk. There is huge potential and opportunity for those who wish to apply and we anticipate that the vast majority of roles in our new structure will be filled by our own talented people, many of whom are excited by the opportunity to move and progress within the Group.”
