Omnicom agencies make UK redundancies

LONDON - The Omnicom-owned Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO group, DDB London, and TBWA have made a number of redundancies in the UK.

Omnicom... redundancies

It is understood that 11 people from TBWA, 16 across DDB London’s group, and an undisclosed number within the AMV group are currently undergoing a consultation period.

In December, the US magazine AdAge reported that Omnicom planned to cut 3,500 jobs, around 5 per cent of its global workforce, as a result of the economic downturn.

However, the UK redundancies are understood to be independent, individual agency decisions rather than the implementation of a group-wide policy.
