Barclays is to cut 1,700 UK branch jobs from 2014 as customers move online for services.
There are 1,577 Barclays branches in the UK which employ 33,600 staff, meaning the job cuts are the equivalent of one staff member per branch. Cuts will come from all sectors including cashiers, personal bankers and branch managers.
Barclays has launched a voluntary redundancy scheme for staff and said staff were "fully consulted" on the changes.
The bank said more people were now using banking services online or via their smartphones which meant less demand for branches.
Union Unite said the cuts would be "detrimental" and "challenging" for the remaining staff and that customer service would suffer.
The announcement follows news last week that the firm would be cutting a third of private banker jobs, who have been dealing with high net worth clients. These will be cut from 275 to 180 as part of a restructuring of its wealth division.
