ANZ have announced plans to cut 230 jobs from their private bank and advice business. This latest announcement comes just weeks after cutting 60 jobs from their commercial business, and 3 more branch closures.
ANZ have said they are
“committed to helping rebuild trust in the financial advice industry”
“Regulatory changes, slower economic growth, increased community expectations and an evolving advice technology landscape require the Advice business to adapt so it can better service customers and create sustainable returns in the future.” – code for cut costs and increase profits.
Cutting 230 more jobs does not meet the pub test for rebuilding trust nor does it meet the needs of staff, customers or the community, – it’s all about cutting costs to increase their profits.
FSU members are already reporting they are working longer and harder, its time ANZ invested in their staff and customers.
