Aston Villa Announce Job Losses

Tue 12th Apr 2016 | Football Club Management

Aston Villa have announced plans to reduce staff numbers from next season.

Villa, who sit bottom of the Premier League, will be relegated this weekend should other results go against them.

A statement released by the club confirmed a restructuring of staff and a voluntary redundancy scheme which is expected to see around 50 people lose their jobs.

“Aston Villa Football Club can confirm it has updated all staff on the proposed changes to the Club structure in order to put it back on a firm footing,” read the statement.

“These changes will result in a headcount reduction but every effort will be made through a voluntary scheme, to mitigate as much as is possible, the need for compulsory redundancies.

“The objective is to secure a sound financial platform from which the Club can rebuild for the benefit of the fans, staff and sponsors.

“We recognise this is an extremely difficult time for all staff and the Club will offer support to all staff affected.”
