The Guardian newspaper is to cut 12% of its staff – 180 people – in cost saving measures. ‘Reductions expected in non-editorial and editorial departments.’

They say: ‘At 29 March 2020, the Guardian had over 790,000 recurring monthly supporters, and had received an additional 340,000 one-off contributions in the previous twelve months, taking total supporter numbers to over 1 million in this financial year.’

‘The coronavirus pandemic has accelerated the existing structural pressures across the news media industry. GMG chief executive Annette Thomas and GNM editor-in-chief Katharine Viner have today announced to GMG employees a set of proposals to:

  • ensure GMG is set up to continue to deliver the most impactful journalism on all platforms, with a particular emphasis on digital;
  • set up the company’s operating model to enable long term sustainability and growth, focusing on the strong and growing relationship with readers; and
  • reduce costs and reposition GMG’s business for the future.’
