– Paul Geddes, Chief Executive Officer of Direct Line Group
While we continue to invest in the business with the aim of winning in a market which is changing fast, it’s clear that we need to become more efficient to deliver the good service and value our customers expect.
We have not made these proposed changes lightly and understand the impact they will have on our people.
As we have done in the past, we will deal fairly and carefully with those impacted, and do all we can to support them through these changes.”
Some 2,000 jobs are under threat at Direct Line Insurance after the group announced plans to more than double its cost-saving plans.
