More top BBC managers to go

July 7th, 2011

The BBC will make further cuts to senior management – from 3% of the workforce to 1% – and curb their pay, BBC Trust chairman Lord Patten says.

In a speech, he said director general Mark Thompson was paid 26% less now than in 2009 and that there were already 15% fewer senior managers.

But he said there was “further to go – both in making further reductions and securing public confidence”.

Changes will mean about 300 senior posts being closed or reclassified.
