Senior management at Lincolnshire County Council is on course to be cut by about 15 per cent with the loss of 25 posts, the authority has announced.
The jobs are to be shed as part of the council’s efforts to save £90 million by 2018.
This comes before a full review of staffing later this year.
Tony McArdle, chief executive, said: “We, like many organisations, are facing challenging times. We have reduced our annual spend by £148m since 2011, but we still need to get that down by another £90m by 2018.
“In the last week, we have spoken to senior management about the way they will operate, and have confirmed that we will need to lose approximately 25 posts (15 per cent). There will be a further full review of staffing which will follow later in the year.”
