EMPLOYEES at the High Street branch of Ulster Bank are facing an uncertain future with the announcement that ten branches will close this year.

The exact locations have not yet been revealed but it is understood that most will be smaller branches, known as sub offices.

A spokesperson for the bank said that ‘branch network’ was ‘under review to ensure that we are operating in the correct locations for our customers’. “As part of this review we will be closing in the region of 20 branches and sub offices on the island of Ireland in 2013. We expect to be in a position to provide further details in the next few weeks and will communicate directly with our customers and employees at that time,” he added.
