The controversial financial institution Anglo Irish Bank is to start a consultation with staff that will result in up to 350 job losses by the end of 2012, 130 of which will come from Ireland.

The bank said it hoped to achieve the workforce reduction through voluntary redundancies, but added that compulsory layoffs could be required if targets are not met.

The redundancies are part of a process to wind-down the bank by 2020. Anglo recently merged with Irish Nationwide as part of the new Irish Government's banking strategy. Anglo was at the centre of events relating to Ireland's failed banking system.
