CIPFA resources director made redundant as institute cuts costs

Public sector accounting institute has made resources director Chris Harris redundant as it looks to cut costs

CIPFA HAS MADE resources director Chris Harris redundant, Accountancy Age has learned.

Harris is the only one of the six directors to go, as part of a cost-cutting redundancy drive.

A spokesman said that no-one else is currently under threat from redundancy. The institute’s staff members were informed of the decision this week.

The institute has been suffering from a far smaller growth in membership in the past few years compared with the other major accountancy institutes.

The cuts in public services are expected to affect CIPFA, where the majority of its members are based.
