Voluntary redundancies: Bristol City Council spends £10m on cuts

A voluntary redundancy scheme in Bristol has seen almost £10 million spent on 299 staff who have opted to leave their roles.

A further 700 jobs are in danger at Bristol City Council as Mayor Marvin Rees looks to bring the books back to black.

The scheme was introduced earlier this year when it was decided full time jobs at Bristol City Council had to be sacrificed in order to save the council money.

Marvin Rees said: “I have inherited a huge financial challenge which is proving bigger than we knew even a month or two ago… we cannot close the gap without reducing the number of jobs at the council.”
