“Transforming Cardiff” is a cost-cutting restructuring exercise being carried out at Cardiff University. At its core lies the third voluntary severance scheme in under 6 years, and the danger of compulsory redundancies in the future.

Our expert finance group has been looking in detail at the University’s accounts, as well as its case for cutting staff. This video summarises their findings.
