York Council considers cutting number of senior managers

The City of York Council is planning to save £230,000 in salary costs by reorganising its senior management structure.

The proposals, set to go to the council's executive next week, include cutting an assistant director's and a director's post.

It follows a review launched a year ago aimed at saving at least £150,000.

The council says a new structure will enable the delivery of the council priorities.

It was also 'developing new relationships with partners, working in partnership with the third sector to deliver local services effectively and adopting early intervention approaches to service delivery.'

In a joint statement City of York Council leader David Carr and deputy leader Keith Aspden said a key priority was to create a more streamlined management structure focused on delivering frontline services for residents.

'Our priority is to ensure we make better use of staffs’ skills to get the right people in the right jobs, so that different parts of the organisation work better together, so that they can be better placed to support the council’s aims and priorities and therefore better placed to help residents.'

If approved the organisation review will be undertaken in phases to allow for a period of staff consultation and to develop and implement job descriptions by October this year.
