Guardian editor-in-chief Alan Rusbridger has confirmed that the paper will be making "significant" job cuts.
He told Steve Hewlett on BBC Radio 4's The Media Show today: "We need to get more developers in with digital skills and we are losing money so we will need to reduce the cost base. Yes, we will need to lose some people and will try to do it in a voluntary way."
Asked by Hewlett what scale the job losses would be?, Rusbridger replied: "We will need to lose significant numbers but we don't need to do it tomorrow. We can do it over the next couple of years and have a civilised conversation about that."
