UK business manager James Clovis said the company "was trying to develop a more horticultural/agricultural/plant health atmosphere in one place" rather than "working in silos".
Nine of the 11 office staff will not be moving. Business development co-ordinator Kate Riley is among those leaving. Business development manager and European key account manager Wayne Smith left last month for personal reasons. Clovis is his UK replacement. Syngenta is currently seeking replacements for seven positions in Cambridge, with two job offers currently tabled.
