ACE faces new job losses

Arts Council England is looking at plans to cut 150 jobs, equivalent to a quarter of its workforce, in its attempt to halve its administration costs by 2015, according to the Stage last week. The government ordered the arts council to cut its administrative costs by 50% in the 2010 Comprehensive Spending Review and these must be in place by 2015. Plans also look at the changing the way ACE works regionally, reducing representation across 9 regions to 5 regions plus the national organisation, and reducing the executive board from 9 members to 5. Before any of this happens, there will be a consultation, but the Stage reports that redundancies are expected to be announced in November and the new structure in July.
