LinkedIn has restructures its entire global marketing team.
The professional network said the move was part of a “restructure”, amid reports its entire global events marketing team had been laid off.
LinkedIn said the move was in response to changes in the events industry.
A spokesperson told EN: ” We decided to restructure, not lay-off, our Global Events Marketing team because the events space has changed so much, and broadly speaking this new team will focus on creating experiences to bring people together across virtual, hybrid and in-person. All members of Global Events Marketing team can apply for roles within the new organization.”
LinkedIn has so far not confirmed the number of roles that have ceased to exist or the number of new roles.
Senior event marketing manager, Chuck Jones, first reported cuts to the team.
He said in a post on LinkedIn: “In a difficult turn of events, my entire team was laid off today at LinkedIn (our collective last day is Sept. 9). Luckily, there are a lot of new internal roles becoming available to which we can apply and become fast-tracked in the recruiting process, as well as some great internal resources, but the fact of the matter is that things like this are never easy. It isn’t the first time in my career (and likely not the last), but I just want to take a moment to let my younger teammates know that these things happen, and you will absolutely be OK. That said, let it be known to the brand and tech marketplace that you have an entire pool of extremely talented people who bring brand experiences to life. Come find us.”
