UCLan Looking To Cut Staff Numbers

The University Of Central Lancashire is looking to cut it’s staffing numbers.

The University is currently seeking any staff wanting to take voluntary redundancy.

Whilst the number of staff needed to take a voluntary redundancy is unknown, Uclan are reportedly trying to make their future “sustainable”.

Joint Institutional Leads at Uclan Liz Bromley and Lynne Livesey said; “The university remains financially stable but given the current economic and political uncertainty in the UK, we have decided to act now to protect our future operations.

“To help us achieve our cost reduction proposals for the 2019/20 academic year, we have invited expressions of interest from any of our staff who may wish to discuss a potential voluntary redundancy arrangement.

“At this stage we have no specific cost reduction target or the exact numbers of staff that this should potentially involve, however we do need to understand the level of interest initially before making any decisions.”

The University is one of the UK’s largest with a student and staff community approaching 38,000. UCLan say that 93% of current staff members enjoy their workplace and say it’s “a good place to work”.
