Knight Frank confirms six redundancies

Knight Frank has confirmed it has made six redundancies across its Liverpool and Manchester offices.

In July, Knight Frank announced it would be closing its office in Liverpool and would be making redundancies after suffering from the weak occupational market.

The agent said in a statement: "Following the recent re-structure of services across Knight Frank's North West operations, which saw the closure of its Liverpool office, the firm has been consulting with a number of employees to consolidate its operations in the region.

"Six members of staff have been made redundant across the Liverpool and Manchester offices, with one member of staff still under consultation. Knight Frank will continue to run a full service to their respective clients out of the Manchester office and as part of the restructure, Knight Frank is considering relocating its premises in Manchester City Centre to incorporate the larger team, which will now consist of 32 people."

Among those made redundant in Liverpool was John Brown, surveyor in commercial agency, who has since joined local independent practice Roy Backhouse & Co.
