Malvern Hills District Council may cut two senior jobs

A Worcestershire council is considering cutting two senior jobs to save £200,000.

Malvern Hills District Council has had a 27% cut in its funding from central government.

Chief Executive Chris Bocock said the council was looking at where it could save money on "back office functions".

"It's very much about protecting front-line services so that the impact on the people we serve, the public, will be minimised," he said.

Mr Bocock said the council could do away with the two posts because it now shared services including IT, revenue and benefits and its contact centre with other local councils.

The savings would be made over three years.

The proposal to cut the number of senior posts from six to four will be discussed by the council on Tuesday.
