Axe hangs over senior jobs

Senior managers’ jobs are to go at Derbyshire County Council as part of the organisation’s drive to cut £157 million from its budget by 2018.

At a meeting last week, Cabinet agreed to remove a further 27 full–time equivalent senior management posts, saving £2.24 million over the next three years.

Council leader Councillor Anne Western said: “No one likes cutting jobs but we need to make cuts due to reductions in Government grants, inflation and greater demands on areas of the budget for many services.

“We said we would start by getting our own house in order – scrutinising spending, reviewing senior management and selling off redundant land.

“The senior management structure will be smaller but by working more efficiently we’re confident we can continue to deliver services for local people and use the savings to help protect some front line services.”

The first phase of the review in November last year saved around £200,000 on management costs. Around £1.1 m will be saved in 2014/15 with a further £1 million over the following two years.
