Research and consultancy firm Resource Futures has cut jobs and closed its Leeds office as part of a streamlining operation.
The number of staff across the company’s consultancy, core staff and management teams has been cut by the equivalent of seven full-time members of staff, reducing the total number of full-time employees to the equivalent of 28.
The reductions have arisen following reductions in public sector expenditure. However, the company will continue to provide resource efficiency research and projects around waste, water, sustainable travel and resource efficiency work.
Resource Futures chief executive Jane Stephenson said: “While we are saddened to be losing some experienced and highly valued colleagues, we view this as an opportunity to align ourselves more strongly with market needs and focus on our core strengths in both our waste and wider resource efficiency work.”
