Deutsche Bank is serious about the austerity measures in the Postbank branches.

An additional 300 jobs are to be eliminated by the early closure of branches by the end of 2023.

This emerges from a letter from the head of private customer business, Philipp Gossow, to his employees that the FAZ is available.

According to this, "above all around 300 counter workplaces" are to be deleted.

For this, the bank wants to use age fluctuation, early retirement regulations and, if necessary, termination agreements, it continues.

The positions of customer advisors are to be retained in full.

You should move your customer base to neighboring branches.
