Earlier this year, it was announced that hundreds of Birmingham City Council jobs may be cut by April of 2015. At the time this announcement was made, the there were more than 50,000 people employed by the council.
It would appear that most of the possible cuts will affect people working in jobs related to things like museums, libraries, housing, adult social care, child care and sports centres.
On the other hand, the council is reported to have said that teaching and social work jobs wonít be threatened. Probably because unions are expected to agree to wage cuts in an effort to avoid even more job being axed. Apparently, there was some overspending on services for people with learning disabilities, older adults and child protection. The lingering global recession most certainly compounds the issue.
It has been said that the cityís economy has been too reliant on its public sector. If these cuts become reality, it will make a noticeable dent in the cityís economy. Some people fear this could set the city into a downward spiral. But with all the talk about job cuts, the councilís website was advertising job vacancies at the time this article was written. Most of them are permanent management and teaching positions. In spite of the cuts, which will be unfortunate for those affected, the council will still have to maintain a certain number of staff, even in the affected areas, in order to keep the city running.
There will still be Birmingham City Council jobs, albeit reduced in number. Most likely, they will be vacancies opening up due to retirements, promotions or simply people moving on to other pastures. There was a time when Birmingham was at the centre of the industrial revolution in Britain. The city rose prominence as an engineering and manufacturing centre. But those days are over now. More recently, the cityís economy has been tied to the service sector. Birmingham is faced with similar budget pressures as cities across the UK, and in fact, around the world. This is an age where corporate and government entities are forced to downsize, streamline or scale back in order to maintain some semblance of financial wellbeing.
If and when the councilís financial situation improves, itís difficult to predict if it will bring the number of jobs back to what is was before the announce was made. By then, the council may have found more efficient ways of doing things. Or it may simply deem that it can get by without most, if not all, of the services that will be affected by the job cuts. Only time will tell.
Recently, Birmingham City Council lost a dispute with female employees over pay equity. The legal ruling could cost the council as much as £30million. About 5,000 women stand to benefit from the ruling.
Some may argue that this will add to the councilís financial woes, and may very well be a factor behind the announced job cuts.
So, Birmingham residents should not expect to see mass hiring for Birmingham City Council jobs any time soon, but the occasional vacancy may pop up.Visit: Birmingham City Council job site.
