BBC SALFORD JOBS
 

Star date: 3rd October 2009

SO WHERE’S THE BBC JOBS FOR SALFORD?

The BBC has announced that only 45% (234 out of 519) of its rank and file staff – those earning between £18,000 to £50,000 – have decided to make the move to Salford, in line with around 45% of its top earning luvvies who decided earlier in the year to move north. That sounds like loads of jobs for Salford people….er, maybe not.

Click here for full story.


Altogether the BBC on the Quays will house 2,300 jobs. 1,500 of those were due to be filled by people relocating from London, and 800 were moving across from the Beeb on Oxford Road in Mancland. However only 45% are coming from London which leaves around 800 vacancies and the BBC is going to start recruiting for these very soon.

Great news for Salford? Just one problem. TV industry magazine, Broadcast, reports that “almost 1,000 staff from across the BBC, whose roles are not moving to BBC North, have expressed an interest in the move”.

Which, according to my maths, means minus 200 jobs for Salford people now eagerly training up in media courses all over the place. But don’t worry, I’m sure they’ll find them all security hats and waitress outfits…

Salford is basicly being annexed as a part of Manchester and 'Salford' is bit by bit being moved further North West. That will be yesterdays story 'Sold Down The River' Salford Quays 'Manchester' is part of that plan and the BBC is going to have the title BBC Manchester ? Where are the decent transport links from Salford to Salford Quays it has been made easier to get to Salford Quays from Manchester and Trafford than it is Salford hardly any bus routes and the 'MetroLink' skirts at the bottom a salford to Eccles rather than through its centre '(Wherever that is)
