Ulster Bank is to cut 175 management roles as the bank looks to slim down its cost base.

It is understood that this morning the bank briefed staff on the plans for cost-cutting that will involve a new round of voluntary redundancies. Staff have until early January to accept the offer.

The latest redundancy scheme will not target frontline staff in bank branches, but instead focus on head office and other backroom roles.
