Lloyds Banking Group is cutting 645 jobs as part of the bank’s ongoing strategic review.
Cuts are being made across the bank’s group operations, HR, consumer finance, retail and commercial banking divisions.
Lloyds says 65 roles are also being created across group operations and retail.
Around half of the cuts relate to the bank’s decision to close its telephone banking centre in Warrington in the first quarter of 2015.
The cuts are part of a plan announced by the bank in June 2011 to cut 15,000 jobs by 2014 in order to make cost savings of £1.5bn a year.
Lloyds says that following today’s announcement, it has now made 13,055 of those job cuts.
A spokesman for Lloyds says: “Lloyds Banking Group is committed to working through these changes with employees in a careful and sensitive way. All affected employees have been briefed by their line manager today.
“The group’s policy is always to use natural turnover and to redeploy people wherever possible to retain their expertise and knowledge within the group.
“Where it is necessary for employees to leave the company, it will look to achieve this by offering voluntary redundancy. Compulsory redundancies will always be a last resort.”
In January, the bank announced 1,100 job cuts in its retail, risk, operations and commercial banking divisions.
Unite national officer Rob MacGregor says: “This is the third tranche of job losses since the beginning of the year and is in danger of sending staff morale to an all time low.
“The closure of the Warrington centre will hit the local economy and risks damaging customer service. Lloyds needs to give its workforce stability and guarantees of no compulsory redundancies.”
