In an announcement to staff in its business centres across Britain, RBS said it was cutting another 3500 jobs, taking the total number of UK-based staff made redundant to 20600.
So far 9000 positions at RBS business centres have disappeared, with back office staff in call centres and IT departments making up the larger part of the redundancies as the bank looks for an annual saving of £2.5bn.
Among the new cuts, around 1500 are related to RBS’s sale of 318 bank branches to Spain’s Santander.
Total losses = 3500

The trade union Accord has announced this morning that 700 jobs are set to go at Lloyds Banking Group’s offices in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.
Since its merger with HBOS last autumn, Lloyds has axed thousands of jobs due to overlap within the megabank.
The news comes just two weeks after the banking giant, which is 43% owned by the taxpayer, announced it would axe 5000 jobs by the end of 2010 – these were in addition to the 10000 already axed this year.
