Tenon staff shocked by redundancies

Troubled accountancy firm Tenon has asked some of its staff to justify their job as it seeks redundancies in a national business review.

Eighteen of the 100 members of staff in Tenon’s Sunderland office near Newcastle could be going after a consultation period of one month. The redundancies would involve the closure of the company’s South Shields office.

The move is part of a national strategic review that intends to ‘look at absolutely everything’ in a fundamental business review. There are no numbers available for potential national redundancies, but a source close to Tenon said five of its 33 offices are undergoing a consultation period.

‘In Newcastle the 18 number is correct, but we cannot say whether or not they will go. People who might be made redundant, they make their case and then a decision is made,’ a Tenon spokeswoman said.

Sunderland staff were ‘stunned’ to hear 20% of the office could be made redundant, local paper icNewcastle learned. The shock was amplified as the North-East grew significantly recently and in December moved to new purpose built premises.
