Jones Lang LaSalle has started consultation with staff across the UK over an unspecified number of redundancies.
In a brief statement on Tuesday, JLL, which acquired rival King Sturge earlier this year, said: "Jones Lang LaSalle confirms that in light of the current financial and economic climate, it has taken the extremely difficult but necessary decision to make a limited number of redundancies affecting employees in our UK business. Where possible, the firm will seek redeployment opportunities for staff within both the UK and international businesses and will provide the necessary support to those affected during this period of change. As a business, we will continue to monitor market conditions and manage our costs accordingly so that we enter 2012 in robust health."
JLL employs 145 people in One Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester and 10 in Castle Street, Liverpool. The number of staff, if any, going from these offices was not disclosed.
