    Default RBS cutting 196 jobs in Dublin

    More bad employment news:

    Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), which owns Ulster Bank, has confirmed today that it is to cut 221 jobs on the island of Ireland as part of a major restructuring programme announced last year.

    The bank met with 196 technology services staff in its Dublin office and 25 in Belfast earlier today to inform them that they are to be laid off.

    RBS said some roles will be transferred to locations where the bank has key back office hubs in the UK and elsewhere.
    I assume "elsewhere is India.

    Well Mary Cough announced 20 new jobs today part financed by IDA Ireland.

    It will be a crisis when live register hits 600,000

    Once SCAMA is active, the BOI and AIB will be sending thousands to the dole queues.

    She is never to be seen when jobs are cut, for some reason..

    Was it 20 jobs or the usual "up to 20 jobs by 20XX"

    a friend of mine was one of the 196

    on the plus side, he hated the job so is relatively sanguine about it!

    Very true. It's also true that the banks are overstaffed, the cuts have been due for a while.

    Hopefully there will be no redundancies in either AIB / BOI.

    Let all the Anglo staff go though

    I worked there but left in the last two years. The job had become meaningless so I know how he feels.
