ITV Studios is making changes at its equipment hire company ProVision that will see it relocate its Manchester base and reduce its presence in Leeds, possibly resulting in the loss of nine jobs.

ProVision’s Trafford Park facility will be vacated this week and a new hire facility opened inside The Sharp Project in East Manchester.

At the same time Provision’s headcount and presence at TV Centre on Kirkstall Road in Leeds (pictured) will be significantly reduced.

In total nine job roles have been put at risk: eight in Leeds and one in Manchester.

The affected staff are currently on a 30-day consultation with management.

Provision employs approximately 20 people across Leeds, Manchester and London.

An ITV spokesperson said: “We are proposing to reshape ProVision to better reflect business demands.

“This includes moving to new premises in Manchester, as well as retaining a core team in Leeds.”
