Jobs warning at the BBC
« on: June 06, 2014, 04:44:05 PM »
I don't know whether I am in the right "thread" here, but I found this in a local paper today:

Jobs warning at the BBC

Staff at the BBC have been warned that a "significant" number of redundancies are likely to be made in the Corporation's news department.

Director of news and current affairs James Harding said in an email to staff that the division had to make savings of "tens of millions of pounds" as part of the so-called Delivering Quality First programme.

Yes Rita it doesn't look good for up to 600 people working within the news department.

Quote from The Guardian ......

"Staff in the BBC's news and radio divisions are bracing themselves for a further round of up to 600 job cuts as part of the latest phase of cost savings which began three years ago.

Up to 500 job losses are expected to be confirmed in BBC News, with around 80 posts going in BBC Radio, according to a Forbes report on Tuesday, with full details of the cuts expected to be announced next month
