Barclays call centre at Salford Quays to be closed down

Staff at the Barclays call centre at Salford Quays have been told the office will be closed down this year.

The closure will mean 475 staff positions are moved to other Barclays offices in Liverpool and Sunderland.

We are focussed on finding alternative employment options for all affected staff elsewhere within the group which is something we know is desirable for many.

We appreciate that for some staff they may wish to take a voluntary redundancy option and this will be available.
