GE Money close Wolverhampton offices

A spokesperson for GE Money Home Lending says: “Given the continually deteriorating market conditions and the impact this is having on business volumes in the UK mortgage market, we regularly review our operations, processes and resources to ensure we have the appropriate teams in place to respond to market realities.

“Whilst it is never easy to announce changes which could affect employees, our key focus will be on ensuring that potentially impacted employees are fully informed and consulted throughout the process.”
