250 jobs to go as Barclays makes more changes

Banking giant Barclays has announced changes it says will lead to the loss of 250 jobs.

Workers from across a number of sites are being brought together, while as previously announced, a site in Leeds is closing following the landlord’s decision to sell it for residential development.

A statement said: “In order to drive collaboration, Barclays is moving teams closer together at our UK sites in Glasgow, Greater Manchester and Northampton, where we are investing in new campuses and office space.

“This will enable us to innovate at pace for the customers and clients we serve. We will do everything we can to support colleagues impacted by the changes announced today, working closely with Unite.”
