Nine staff, most of them at senior management level, have been made redundant as part of a restructure at hearing-loss charity the RNID.
Among the senior staff departing are Brian Lamb, executive director of communications, and Ranila Ravi-Burslem, director of marketing and new media.
The charity's new structure, in which it has also created 19 new posts, came into force at the beginning of this month.
Jackie Ballard, chief executive of the RNID, said there had been wide-ranging changes to the charity's structure, designed to help it deliver its strategy more effectively. "We now have a number of exciting new roles to which we are actively recruiting talented people," she said.
An RNID spokeswoman said the restructure was driven by strategy rather than finance and she did not have a figure for projected cost savings. But she said there would be more staff, rather than fewer, once the restructure was complete.
