Financial services company Lombard Ireland has announced 108 redundancies jobs following a review of its operations. Eighty-four of the job losses are to occur in the Republic of Ireland, while 24 are in Northern Ireland. Lombard is owned by Royal Bank of Scotland and provides lending for a range of assets from cars to factory equipment. Issuing a statement, the company says it will now provide financing directly to businesses in the Irish market and will no longer operate through broker networks. On a brighter note, it hopes to offset the job losses by creating 17 new posts, adding that some staff affected could be redeployed.
