Christian Aid faces ‘essential reorganisation’ as six per cent of jobs cut

CHRISTIAN AID is consulting staff over a six-per-cent reduction in posts, and internal reorganisation, in response to an “increasingly challenging fundraising environment”, its chief executive, Loretta Minghella, said.

She said that the reorganisation would be difficult for staff, but was essential if the charity was to continue its work.

The charity currently employs 952 staff worldwide, but a six-per-cent reduction would see staff reduced to 890 full-time equivalent posts.

A decision on the reorganisation would be made in December, at the end of the consultation, Ms Minghella said.

She added: “Our overall income remains strong, but we are responding to an increasingly challenging fundraising environment, and our experience of how people prefer to approach their giving.”

The charity’s annual report, published earlier this year, showed that its income had dropped four per cent from the previous financial year.
