On 1 February 2016 we published a news item with information regarding our organisational cost reductions and restructure. Further to this, we have now published our updated organisational structure.
As a result of the material reduction in the size of the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF), announced in the 2015 Autumn Statement, it has been necessary to make some changes to our organisational structure to reduce our operational costs. The new structure reflects the reduction of posts and the reallocation of work to other parts of our business.
The following changes have been made to our previous structure:
- The Head of Operations role has been re-titled to Deputy Chief Executive to reflect the wider remit of this role across the company;
- There have been changes to the reporting structure for the following roles - Finance Manager, Quality Assurance and Performance Officer, IT Systems Officer and IT Support Officer;
- The Finance Assistant role has become part time to enable the role holder to support the Policy and Regulations Team part time; and
- The following posts have been made redundant - Head of Finance, Training and Information Officer, Registrations Administrator and one Compliance Inspector post (from April 2016).
The overarching aim of these changes is to ensure that we are able to continue to deliver our core services as a regulator to high quality levels, while recognising that we have become a leaner organisation.
These cost savings, alongside previous reductions mean that, since 2010, we have delivered a 30 per cent reduction in our funding requirement. During 2016/2017, we will continue to review our funding requirements with a view to delivering further cost savings.
