Lloyds sends further 450 jobs to India

Lloyds TSB has announced that its information technology division will be exporting up to 450 UK-based jobs to India over the next nine months.

The Lloyds TSB Group Union says the jobs are from the technical delivery function of Lloyds’ IT division, raising the total number of jobs transferred to India to 655 by this division alone.

The jobs consist of up to 250 permanent Lloyds TSB staff and a further 200 UK contractor staff working on behalf of the bank.

The union says: “In the six IT platforms affected by this phase of the offshoring programme, only 30 per cent of all jobs will be based in the UK with the other 70 per cent being based in India.”

It adds that it expects hundreds more IT jobs to be transferred to India from other areas of the IT division.
