Sophie Gordon, head of photographs at the Royal Collection Trust (RCT), Windsor, has now confirmed publicly that she is accepting voluntary redundancy. She has been at the Collection for 15 years. The RCT is undertaking a significant restructure following a fall in visitor numbers and revenues as a result of COVID-19. The Trust is also making compulsory redundancies. Gordon's former curatorial colleague Helen Trompeteler who left in the summer and has not been replaced.
She wrote: "I decided to take the voluntary redundancy offer, as it is time for me to move on. Lots of reasons, some personal, some professional. My post - Head of Photographs - is still on the org chart in the newly restructured Royal Collection, but it is apparently going to be frozen for a couple of years. Although at this point, frankly, anything could happen". She encourages everyone to support the sector by visiting museums and galleries."
