RBS to cut a further 3,500 jobs

Royal Bank of Scotland is planning to cut 3,500 jobs from its technical and back office division in the UK.

The bank has told staff that up to 12 offices could close in England, with some jobs added in Greenock and Edinburgh.

About a third of the job losses are as a result of RBS selling 318 of its branches to Santander, reducing its number of customers and transactions.

RBS announced about 4,000 job cuts last year as it restructures its business.

RBS had been told by the European Commission to reduce its number of branches in order to safeguard competition concerns after it was bailed out by the UK government.

The jobs being cut include some 1,000 in IT support and 2,500 in support services to its other businesses.

There are more than 1,000 IT supporters telling branch staff to turn their workstation off and back on again? Astonishing.

It's banking - You process debits, you process credits, you add the net to last night's balance to arrive at today's balance. How hard can it be?

It's a 24/7 internet operation with potentially 100s of thousands access per hour.

How many people do you think it requires to keep that up and running?
