1pm RTÉ director-general announces recruitment freeze
RTÉ director-general Kevin Bakhurst has announced a recruitment freeze with immediate effect and said all discretionary spending will be stopped.
In an e-mail to staff, Mr Bakhurst said he “regrets” the move as it will impact on RTÉ’s coverage and its investment in equipment and digital plans.
“Given the steep fall in the licence fee and the uncertainty over interim funding, it is the only responsible thing that we can do,” he said.
