JOB CUT BACKS FOR BMF
The marine industry has hit by yet another recession related blow and this one has caused huge shockwaves. The British Marine Federation, the trade body for leisure boating businesses in the UK, has been forced to cut jobs at its Egham base. The organisers of the London and Southampton Boat Shows said the cuts would be achieved by a limited number of redundancies and by not filling current vacancies. The number of jobs to be axed is still in the balance and will be announced within the next fortnight following consultation.
BMF CEO, Rob Stevens, has stated 'We have done all we can to avoid these regrettable reductions. I know this is a difficult time for colleagues at Marine House but we will ensure that these changes will not compromise our core services or the industry's two boat shows… The BMF is not immune to the current economic climate but by taking these tough decisions now we are putting ourselves in a sustainable position to continue to serve and champion the leisure marine industry.'
