The National Association of Jewellers has decided to no longer have staff working from its London office on Britton Street.
As more and more of its London staff members have taken to working from home, the Association says it has become uneconomical to keep the few remained staff based in the London office.
The NAJ states: “The Association has a responsibility to our subscription-paying members to run as tight a ship as possible.”
As such, remaining roles on Britton Street will be moved to Birmingham, or will also become home-based.
While staff will no longer work at the London office, the space will still be used for committee and stakeholder meetings, and available for member use.
Looking ahead to the New Year, chief executive office, Simon Forrester, says: “The world has moved from relative stability to now be volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. We have to change along with our members to stay in the game.
“It will be an exciting year as we look to progress our strategy further, with the help of our new committees and our many stakeholders. One thing that I am confident of is that we will continue to have a committed and professional staff team, excellent volunteers who give up their time to drive the organisation forward, and passionate and professional members who are enthusiastic about making the industry a little bit better.”
