UK IT staff to go as Barclays offshores

IT support workers are among 1,100 staff who will lose their jobs when Barclays Bank shrinks operations at its Dorset office and moves some roles overseas.

The bank plans to cut 1,100 jobs over the next three years at Barclays House in Poole, which has 2,000 employees, including an IT support team and cheque processing staff.

A Barclays spokesman said, "There will be some redundancies in the IT support department and there is going to be some outsourcing. It has not been decided how many roles will be offshored, but we estimate it will be about 400."

Amicus official Steve Pantak said the union was concerned by the scale of the cuts. "We will be working with the bank to ensure the maximum number of redeployments and voluntary redundancies," he said.
