The council hopes to make savings through voluntary redundancy
East Renfrewshire Council is looking to cut up to 200 staff from its workforce over the next two years due to "on-going budget pressures".
The authority said it would consider requests for voluntary redundancy and reduced working hours.
It has set a deadline of 24 April for expressions of interest which it said would be treated with "no obligation".
The council said any savings made would be "ploughed back into services for residents".
Chief executive Lorraine McMillan said: "We expect to be affected by on-going budget pressures over the coming financial years, while we are continuing with our already-established efficiency drive.
"The combination of these factors means that we need to reduce our workforce by 100 to 200 over the next two years.
"As a council which values its staff, we have chosen to go down the road of voluntary redundancy, with savings being ploughed back into services for residents."
