A spokesperson for the Irish broadcasting network TV3 has confirmed it is looking for a number of voluntary redundancies in areas such as news, content and broadcasting (which, let’s face it, seem very pivotal to the running of the entire network no?). The voluntary redundancy scheme in place is apparently limited to a number of roles however.
The spokeswoman commented “The content model in TV3 will involve considerable change as we implement our strategy for 2015. We are aware that such an environment is not for everyone so we have decided to run a voluntary leaver scheme for the content, news and broadcast areas”.
She furthered this saying “It will be at the company’s discretion to accept requests for voluntary redundancies based on the role and there will be a limited number of places”. This “strategy for 2015” for TV3 is appearing more and more bold, seeing as it has just lost broadcasting rights for GAA to UTV, as well as some of their top shows like Coronation Street. According to reports, two as of yet unnamed senior employees have handed in their resignation.
