The BBC reports that The National Union of Students (NUS) has cut 54 jobs in response to its "financial issues". In the article, the NUS said it offered voluntary redundancy to reduce staffing costs "in a way that provided a positive exit" for those involved. Fifteen staff left the union at the end of December, the NUS said, and the remaining 39 would leave between January and May.

An NUS statement said: "In response to the financial issues we faced last year, we proposed a staff voluntary redundancy scheme which launched on 19 November and closed on 12 December.

"By providing colleagues with choice, in what is a difficult and emotional time for all of us, our intention was to reduce our staffing costs in a way that provided a positive exit for those whose applications were accepted."
