Seven employees have taken voluntary redundancy and Mouchel expects to announce up to ten more job losses in the coming weeks as spending levels by Lincolnshire County Council fall.
Sue Kennedy, operations director and deputy partnership director for Mouchel, told the Lincolnshire Echo: “Mouchel can confirm that it has recently concluded a voluntary redundancy process resulting in seven staff requests for voluntary redundancy being accepted.
“A consultation process has just commenced in the property part of the business with an anticipated reduction of up to ten posts.
“These processes have been necessary to ensure staffing levels are appropriate for the workloads.”
The council has reduced its total spending with Mouchel by £2.85m over the past six years.
