The Ministry of Defence’s (MoD) Head Office is to become smaller after plans to cut up to 25% of senior civilian and military staff over the next two years, the defence secretary Philip Hammond has said.
A new senior structure will come into force from April 2013 with fewer senior positions. It is to save the MoD about £3.8m annually.
About 26 civilian and military jobs at Senior Civil Service level - which is equivalent to Commodore, Brigadier and Air Commodore or above - will disappear.
The new Head Office will concentrate more on strategy. In future, it will not get involved in day-to-day management. Frontline commands will be in charge of looking after their own finances.
