BBC staff to be told to reapply for their jobs

Hundreds of BBC workers could be forced to reapply for their jobs as the corporation tries to shed up to 2,800 jobs.

Staff will be asked to complete CVs and 200-word covering letters, according to reports today.

BBC director-general Mark Thompson wants to cut the jobs because the corporation is £2bn over budget due to overestimating its licence fee settlement.

There are plans to make journalists reapply for their jobs to make sure the procedure is open and fair, according to the Times.
