Sadler’s Wells Enters Consultation Process with Permanent and Fixed Term Staff

13 Aug 2020

Sadler’s Wells has announced that it has entered a consultation process with its permanent and fixed term staff. This is as a result of the devastating impact of the coronavirus crisis on our operations, the continued closure of our theatres, and ongoing uncertainty about when we may be able to reopen fully.

During this period, Sadler’s Wells will consult with all permanent and fixed term staff on proposed organisational change and efficiency measures. These proposals could put 51 permanent or fixed term roles at risk of redundancy or layoff, which represents 26% of our permanent and fixed term workforce. This is in addition to other measures we have and are taking to reduce costs at this time.

This process will be very difficult for all members of the Sadler’s Wells community. The decision to enter a consultation process was incredibly hard to make, and one which the organisation has done all it can to avoid.
