CBRE has started redundancies across its UK advisory business as part of a restructure of the business in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

The agent reopened its offices at the end of May, after two and a half months in lockdown.

CBRE’s UK advisory employees at its corporate offices were the first to work from home, starting 16 March.

Those roles are now under review as the business looks to recover post-pandemic.

A spokesperson said the move was “part of a strategic review to optimise the structure of the business and respond to the impact of Covid-19 on market activity”.

They said: “CBRE will take every opportunity to mitigate the impact of proposed redundancies and will provide the necessary support to those affected during this period of change. CBRE will continue to invest in the business when opportunities arise and remains well positioned to advise clients during these challenging times.”
