Lloyds Banking Group removes another 1000 in-house jobs

Lloyds Banking Group is continuing its strategy to cut and outsource UK roles.

The bank is going to cut 570 jobs and outsource another 450.

See this report in The Guardian.

In the summer of 2009 union Unite accused Lloyds of having a strategy of death by a thousand cuts.

Since Lloyds TSB took over HBOS in a government brokered deal in 2008 it has cut about 27000 jobs.
