Barclays set to slash 900 Jobs in UK: Report

Last week, Barclays revealed it is considering a wider restructuring plan that could potentially lead to cutting up to 2,000 positions.

Barclays set to slash 900 Jobs in UK: Report

Barclays, is likely to slash up to 900 jobs within its British operations, according to statements made by the employee union Unite. The move aligns with the bank's overarching strategy aimed at substantial cost reductions to bolster its financial performance, reported Reuters

An official from Unite revealed in the report that Barclays staff received notification about the potential job cuts around 1300 GMT. While the precise number of job cuts were not confirmed by a Barclays spokesperson to Reuters, the bank had previously indicated its intent to curtail expenses in its recent announcement during the third quarter results.

"We are implementing several measures to streamline our operations, enhance service quality, and generate better returns. This includes restructuring management levels and augmenting our technological and automated capabilities," stated a spokesperson representing Barclays to Reuters.

In a bid to save up to £1 billion (equivalent to $1.25 billion), Barclays is likely to set a broader restructuring scheme that might involve reducing as many as 2,000 positions, the firm informed last week.

Barclays' CEO C.S. Venkatakrishnan is aggressively working towards elevating the bank's profitability in anticipation of an investor update scheduled for February. This forthcoming presentation will unveil comprehensive details of the cost-cutting strategy and the bank's blueprint for augmenting revenue streams, reported Reuters.
