Fears over Chichester card firm’s jobs

CONCERNS have been expressed over the future of dozens of jobs at a Chichester greeting card firm.

Carte Blanche cards, which has a workforce of more than 200 people across the country including its HQ at City Fields Way, Tangmere, has confirmed it is in consultation with staff over restructuring its business.

Sources close to the business believe upto 80 people could be affected by the process next month.

The firm has operated a range of successful card brands including Tatty Teddy.

A spokesperson for the company confirmed that it is in consultation with a number of staff. “We are taking on a restructuring of the business as any firm should be looking at, but it is not true to say we are making redundancies.”

The spokesperson refused to confirm how many people it is in consultation with.
