Almost 300 jobs to go at Barclaycard’s call centre

Bookmark and Share

Banking giant Barclays is reducing headcount further - this time at its credit card arm, Barclaycard.

The announcement comes just a week after the bank said it will axe 1,000 jobs as it ceases to offer financial planning advice in its branches.

Meanwhile, the job losses within the credit card division are the result of the bank transferring back office roles overseas.

Today’s announcement has prompted further outrage from officials at the Unite union, who said there will be 77 job losses in Northampton, 11 in Teesside and the remaining 197 in Wavertree, Merseyside.

The bank commented: “The proposed changes are being made as part of Barclaycard’s ongoing programme of improving day-to-day operational efficiency so that it can re-invest in continuing to deliver good value products and innovative services to its customers”.
