LGC produces interactive map of council job losses

The Local Government Chronicle has produced an interactive map of local government job losses. It makes for sobering reading, particularly in light of recent reports into the lack of growth in the private sector and grim news for the economy as a whole.

Some of the data is startling, even with data for many authorities incomplete:
  • The metropolitan district of Bradford is forecast to shed more than 31% of its staff in 2011/12
  • Northampton county council is planning to lose 900 posts, or 16.4% of total posts, in the same financial year
  • Both Liverpool city council and Somerset county council will lose around 1,500 posts each within the next two years
For more, the link is here.
