HR redundancy scare at Alton Towers

Up to
three-quarters of the HR department at Alton Towers could be culled as part of
a management restructure, Personnel Today has learned.

The
theme park would not comment on details of where job losses would take place,
but said the review was designed to address issues raised by staff in a recent
internal survey that showed overall efficiency could be improved by flattening
the management structure.

Fourteen
of its 20 HR jobs are being reviewed in a 30-day consultation, but a source
said staff had seen the planned changes, and that these jobs did not feature in
the new structure.

The
jobs to be lost include HR advisers and training officers, as well as a
divisional director at Alton towers, the source said.

In
total, 90 jobs out of 365 at the park are under threat.
