Bank HSBC to cut 8,000 UK jobs
Banking giant HSBC is to cut between 22,000 and 25,000 jobs globally including a reported 8,000 in the UK as part of an overhaul to slash costs and reshape the business.
The bank said it was planning a reduction of around 10% of its full-time workforce.
It is thought 8,000 jobs could be impacted in the UK, where HSBC has around 48,000 employees.
The group also announced aims to sell its businesses in Turkey and Brazil, which will see its workforce reduce by around another 25,000.
It comes as the bank seeks to deliver annual cost savings of around 4.5 billion US dollars (£2.9 billion) to 5 billion US dollars (£3.3 billion) by the end of 2017.
