BBC recruits McKinsey to make cost-cutting...

Management consultant company McKinsey & Company has been appointed by the BBC to help the broadcaster identify keys areas where it can make cost-saving decisions.

The firm will assist the BBC as it looks to make the corporation more efficient in terms of finance and one of the ways it plans to achieve this is by moving a lot of staff from its headquarters in London to the new MediaCityUK development in Salford.

The BBC has already relocated a number of programmes to the north-west including its Breakfast show and Match of the Day

However, the move has attracted criticism from the Taxpayers' Alliance whose spokesman Robert Oxley has said that the BBC is not representing value in licence fees by hiring a management consultancy company which is said to cost £5,000 a day.

A BBC spokesman defended the broadcaster's decision saying: "As specialists in analysing how large businesses operate, McKinsey are providing the BBC team with training in business analysis techniques together with project management skills so we can bring this in-house."
