The restructure, initiated before Christmas, affected 15 roles out of the department’s total 45 staff.

However, the newspaper group insists it plans to make new hires to bring its total headcount back up to 45.

A Times Media spokesman said that the new positions would be in more “upscale” areas of digital marketing and customer activity.

Sales and marketing director Katie Vanneck, who joined from Telegraph Media Group in June last year, said the group is searching for a candidate to fill the head of digital role, which she admitted was proving difficult.

Times Media has already made several senior marketing appointments to the newly restructured team under Vanneck.

Liz Settle joined Times Media from Emap as head of marketing development to create a strategic customer framework, while Rachel Smith was hired from TMG as Times Media’s new partnership and promotions manager.

Also, Lisa Seddon joined from The Muse Corporation as communities marketing manager.
