The Eden Project has announced that it is aiming to reduce its annual costs by £2 million.
Staff have been informed that up to 70 jobs could be lost at its site near St Austell. A statutory consultation process is due to begin on Wednesday.
Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust could cut up to seven hundred jobs over the next five years.
The Trust says it needs to save around £50m but hopes to avoid any compulsory redundancies. The issue will be discussed in a report later this week.
Three hundred jobs are to go at the airline Flybe, a third at its headquarters in Exeter. The company is trying to reduce costs by £35 million as passenger revenues fall and fuel prices rise.
The firm is mainly blaming the increase in air passenger tax which managers say left them with "no choice" but to cut jobs.
Unemployment in the South West has fallen by 10,000 in the last three months. Figures released by the Office for National Statistics show that the current unemployment rate is 5.5%
It comes at the same time 300 jobs losses have been announced by Flybe, a 100 of which will go in Exeter. The company is trying to save £35 million as passenger revenues fall and fuel prices increase.
Thirty three people in Exeter have been made redundant from the electrical chain Comet. It brings the total number of jobs axed at the group across the UK to more than 700. Most of the job losses come from the company's home delivery network. No jobs have gone at Comet stores so far.
Employment Minister Mark Hoban says there are still some challenges for Devon and Cornwall as new figures reveal unemployment has fallen in the South West.
Nationally, around 50,000 more people were in work according to the official figures for July to September. The unemployment figure is 2.51 million. Average earnings are also up 1.8%.[

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said that a total of 155,000 people were unemployed in the South West between July and September. The region's unemployment rate was 5.8% and saw a drop of 1.3% during the period.
It's good news to see yet another increase in the number of people in work and to see unemployment fall again. The fall in youth unemployment is particularly welcome, although we're not complacent about the scale of the challenge still facing us.
– Employment Minister Mark Hoban
We're working hard to help the long-term unemployed back into a job. That's why we've committed to supporting the hardest-to-help people over a two-year period through the Work Programme so that we can help them overcome their barriers to work and get them into sustainable jobs.
Unemployment in the South West dropped by 2,000 this summer, according to the official figures released today.
150,000 people were out of work, or 5.8%. The region's reflecting the national picture, with total unemployment now at its lowest level for a year.
