Aberdeen City Council has confirmed the acceptance of 150 applications for voluntary severance or early retirement from employees across the organisation.

Applications were invited as part of the 2017/18 budget process, as agreed by members of the full Council in February 2017.

Chief Executive Angela Scott said: “The VSER programme is one part of a wider reaching change programme which is transforming the way Aberdeen City Council does its business.

“A leaner and more efficient Council is vital as we continue to improve our use of resources whilst enhancing the customer and staff experience. We are committed to an innovative and dynamic approach which embraces new technology and digital opportunities.

“We are being proactive in balancing the ambitions for the city and the organisation against the resources at our disposal. Above all, it is our duty to build for a sustainable future for the Council and Aberdeen.

“The work to shape the organisation will continue in full consultation with staff, trade unions and other key stakeholders. We are supporting colleagues who have chosen to leave the organisation, helping them to plan for the future, as well as working with remaining staff to ensure they are empowered to play a central role in what is a positive programme of change.”

Aberdeen City Council employs approximately 8,600 staff.
