The ABC has announced a proposal to reshape its technology team, which could lead to the loss of up to 37 staff.
The newly named product and content technology team will bring together employees from across the ABC with expertise in product, design and development.
Under the proposal, the ABC will double its investment in digital products for audiences, to recognise the shift from broadcast to digital platforms. The proposal also includes a flatter structure to enable faster and more streamlined decision-making and accountability.
The ABC said the new structure and approach will accelerate digital growth and deliver better audience outcomes by creating a product capability that focuses on product, design and development.
ABC chief digital and information officer Helen Clifton said the proposal would strengthen the ABC’s ability to deliver more to audiences.
“These are hard decisions, but the right ones to guarantee the ABC remains properly equipped, now and into the future, with so many rapid changes in technology,” she said.
