Council warns of 370 job cuts

Aberdeen City Council is to cut 230 full-time jobs and disestablish 140 vacant positions in a bid to save more than £10m in 2018/19.

The council hopes the reduction of up to 230 full time equivalent (FTE) posts will be made through voluntary redundancies.

Angela Scott, chief executive of Aberdeen City Council, said: 'We are committed to managing the reduction in posts in as sensitive and understanding way as we can.

'As opportunities for change are identified, primarily as a result of teams coming together in the functional structure and highlighting duplication, employees will be involved through both engagement and consultation.'
