Lloyds’ intermediary bosses made to reapply for jobs

Lloyds Banking Group has asked the heads of its three intermediary sales teams and the head of its national accounts department to reapply for their jobs following the closure of Cheltenham & Gloucester for Intermediaries.

The closure, which was announced in March, means there will only be two sales teams – Birmingham Midshires and Halifax – and the national accounts department. Halifax will also look after the Scottish Widows brand.

The heads having to reapply are Halifax head of sales Ian Wilson, Cheltenham & Gloucester head of sales Kevin Purvey, Birmingham Midshires head of sales Phil Rickards and head of national accounts Maria Harris.

The consultation will run throughout May and the lender plans to have the candidates in place on June 1.
