MORE than 70 managers have joined the exodus from Liverpool council and now 700 more employees have been offered redundancy, under a huge cash saving programme. All managers earning more than Â£40,000 were offered voluntary redundancy earlier in the summer. The cull has seen some of the most senior officials leave in a move that has already saved Â£4m. Now 700 members of staff have been emailed with an invitation to apply for the scheme that has offered a minimum of 12 weeksâ€™ pay, irrespective of time served and a lump sum worth up to 40 weeksâ€™ pay.
