Cruise line Hurtigruten has announced it will be cutting up to 40 jobs from one of its Norway offices to help save more than £7 million annually.

The company said between 35 and 40 employees in administration roles will be made redundant as it embarks upon a restructuring programme.

Hurtigruten will close down its office in Narvik and concentrate administration in its office in Tromsø.

The company has said it aims to reduce land-based administration in the Nordic countries by 25-30%, as it hopes to save more than NOK 60 million (£6.9 million) annually.

A Hurtigruten spokesperson said: “The initial restructure is to combine the two Nordic offices into one. Phase two will look at the whole global structure.”
