Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Museums Journal reports that the National Media Museum is consulting on a restructure that could see it make up to five posts redundant across its senior management team and film department.

The Bradford museum has been forced to scale back its five-year masterplan and reduce its operational costs due to ongoing government cuts. The museum’s parent organisation, the Science Museum Group, needs to find savings of £3.7m by 2015-16, in addition to a further £787,000 cut announced in last year’s autumn statement.

The National Media Museum launched a consultation into the proposed changes last Friday. A spokesman from the museum said: “We have started consultation with five members of staff affected by proposed changes to structures and roles within the National Media Museum senior management team and film department. 

“We recognise that this is an extremely difficult time and will ensure that this will be conducted with the utmost consideration for those staff members who are affected.”
