The bank has revealed that it will be cutting 1,020 staff in its group operations division as Lloyds TSB and HBOS functions are combined. It will be also cutting another 240 jobs as Clerical Medical is merged into Scottish Widows.
The cuts will be made by the end of Q1 2010.
Two weeks ago the group revealed that it would be cutting 2,100 jobs over the next three years as well as it slashing 240 jobs in Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man last month.
This latest bout of cuts takes the total to more than 8,000 since the start of the year, according to the trade union, Unite.
Lloyds says: “Lloyds Banking Group is committed to working through these changes with colleagues carefully and sensitively.”
Unite national officer Rob MacGregor says: “What is the justification for 8,200 staff to be cut in the last three months while Lloyds continues to perform considerable work out of the country?
“We appear to have Groundhog Day where thousands of staff each week are told that they are to lose their jobs, yet Lloyds remains a state-owned bank. Unite views the weekly cull of jobs a disgraceful approach by this taxpayer supported financial institution.
“It is essential that these taxpayer funded institutions are radically overhauled to ensure that the sector’s corporate governance regime is fit for purpose.”
