Arts Council England to cut jobs by a fifth

2 November 2012

Arts Council England, which runs England's new music education hubs, is to cut 118 jobs, reducing its numbers from 560 to 442 full-time posts. The cuts are in response to a government requirement to reduce administrative costs by 2015.

A spokeswoman said that the music hubs 'will not be affected by the Arts Council organisational review'. She added: 'The Department for Education has provided ringfenced funding for this activity, and this includes administrative costs. We have ensured we have an adequate number of music relationship managers in the new structure to deliver this work.'

The changes will come into effect in July 2013. There will also be a regional restructuring that will see the closure of some Arts Council offices and merging of regions, resulting in five Arts Council areas - London, South East, South West, Midlands and North - instead of the current nine. Major offices will be located in London, Birmingham, Manchester and Bristol.

Chief executive Alan Davey warned that the changes will mean the Arts Council 'will do less and do it differently', but he insisted the organisation would still be effective.
