Bosses at TSB are set to close 70 branches across the UK.

Tuesday, 30th November 2021, 1:05 pm

Around 150 roles will be cut – but staff will be offered alternative jobs.

It comes as the banking giant said more customers are now using online banking.

TSB will have 220 physical branches left by the end of 2022, and this is the country's seventh-largest branch network in the UK.

There are numerous TSB banks in Hampshire which include TSB Portsmouth in Arundel Street, TSB Southampton in Above Bar Street and TSB Romsey in Market Place Street.

These branches will not be facing closure.

It has been two years since TSB set out plans to scale back its branch network but due to the effect the pandemic has had on banking in-store, the changes are happening sooner.

TSB said there is 'no prospect of branch transactions returning to pre-Covid levels' with nine in 10 transactions now being made online and 90 per cent of mortgage appointments are now video calls.

TSB chief customer officer Robin Bulloch said: ‘Closing branches is an incredibly difficult decision to take, but we have to respond to the changes in the way people bank and provide the right mix of services for all our customers now and into the future.‘These changes allow us to maintain an extensive branch presence across the country.

‘They are accompanied by a significant investment programme to upgrade branches to better suit customer needs.

‘And, where it takes longer to get to the nearest branch, we will introduce more ‘pop-up’ services in communities.’

The bank has ensured that 90% of their customers will still be within 20 minutes of a branch.

TSB plan to add 10 pop-up branches to replace some of the banks, which adds to the 41 that have already been established in the UK.

Bank staff working at the pop-up branches are encouraged to help customers to get into online banking.

TSB has also promised extra support for vulnerable customers who will be hit by the closures.

The TSB branch locator tool is currently down on their website but customers can pay in and take money out of their accounts in Post Office locations across the UK.
