Brent Council to cut workforce by 400
At least 100 managers to go as council looks to save �21 million
BETWEEN 300 and 400 people will be made redundant by June as Brent Council seeks to knock a further �16 million off its budget by April.
The Times broke the story four weeks ago revealing at least 100 posts will be from management after an external audit highlighted an excessive manager to employee ratio.
Every department is expected to be be affected by the losses.
The move follows a root-and-branch staff and structural review with managers accessing what positions could go while being assessed themselves.

All staff were notified by Wednesday, January 18, and can volunteer for redundancy during the 90-day consultation period which ends in April.
Any shortage in take-up will mean compulsory redundancies will be issued although some people will have the opportunity to retrain and apply for alternative positions.
