The British Woodworking Federation (BWF) has reshaped itself after forecasting reduced income during the next two years.

Three staff have been made redundant, including the marketing director and marketing manager (for windows), and the currently vacant post of marketing manager (fire doors) will now not be filled. The other job affected was a part-time administrative post.

Chief executive Richard Lambert has redistributed the BWF’s work across a core team, retaining technical expertise and membership service levels which he said were “essential for the organisation’s future development”.

He said the BWF had a responsibility to plan for “two tough years” ahead and get the organisation into shape to survive the downturn.
