Annual Report 6

A smaller Auntie ? The BBC's 'public service' head count dropped from 19,357 in 2016/17 to 18,210 in 2017/18.

That's not because vast numbers of jobs were cut. 1,546 were moved from 'Content' to the new commercial subsidiary, BBC Studios. Over the year, 315 jobs were cut, and 418 new posts created. There were also 774 new jobs in World Service News, largely thanks to additional Foreign Office funding (though it seems World Service may have also spent a tad more than its Operating Licence allowed).
