Ulster Bank is set to cut around 50 jobs across Northern Ireland.

Staff have been told the jobs are set go from its branches.

It will also end Saturday opening hours at several of its branches as of next month.

That includes Armagh, Ballymena, Bangor, Coleraine, Downpatrick, Dungannon, Enniskillen, Magherafelt, Newtownards, Omagh and Portadown.

Ulster Bank has said it is offering staff the opportunity to “apply for a small number of redundancies on a strictly voluntary basis”.

Union the IBOA said the latest development will only exacerbate existing difficulties.

"Staff in retail banking are the human face of Ulster Bank who engage directly with customers every minute of every day

" They know the challenges customers face and do their utmost to help and provide quality service to customer."

A spokesman for Ulster Bank said: "As part of our ongoing efforts to build a strong and sustainable bank, we are offering members of our branch staff the opportunity to apply for a small number of redundancies on a strictly voluntary basis."
