Unbelievably the flawed computer programme that led to a week of chaos for millions of RBS and Natwest customers was being supervised by an IT support team in India, it was revealed last night.
Last February, RBS advertised for a series of key jobs, paying between £9,000 and £11,000 a year, in the Indian city of Hyderabad. That is way below what an equivalent worker would be paid in Britain.
Since being rescued by the taxpayer RBS has shed about 30,000 jobs, including more than 20,000 UK-based roles, and has outsourced work abroad.
Some of its IT support teams are now said to be based in India, even though the under-fire banking group's headquarters remain in Edinburgh.
So much for British Jobs For British People!
With large companies like this outsourcing work abroad it's no wonder there aren't enough jobs for British people.
Doing this may have saved RBS and Natwest money on wages, but at a massive cost to their customers and to the 20,000 British workers they replaced with workers from abroad.
What an absolute disgrace!
