SIX senior managers at Kirklees Council will lose their jobs.
The assistant directors will be made redundant as the council slashes costs to deal with the Government’s public spending squeeze.
Kirklees has already reduced its heads of service from seven to four and its assistant directors from 29 to 19 as part of the cuts programme, which will see the council’s non-school workforce fall from 11,200 to 9,700.
But Kirklees has been forced to cut even deeper after the Government demanded an extra £7.1m spending reduction by next April.
The council’s Personnel Committee will meet on Friday to approve the plan drawn up by officers.
Under the proposal, the two assistant director posts for streetscene and neighbourhoods will be merged into one position.
A new post of assistant director for investment and regeneration will replace the three assistant directors for regeneration and economic development; strategic investment and public protection.
The assistant director posts for building services and inclusion services will be abolished.
And a new post of assistant director of commissioning, social care and families will replace the two positions of assistant director of commissioning and personalisation and commissioning.
