UPDATE: Bank reveals no job losses despite branch closure

UPDATE:

NATIONAL Australia Bank has revealed none of its staff members will lose their jobs despite the bank closing its CBD branch.

"We are pleased to confirm that all four staff members who currently work at the branch will move to roles at neighbouring NAB branches," a spokesperson said.

"We are seeing fewer people using branches like they used to with more than 90 per cent of our customer interactions through digital channels. In response to the changing ways customers are banking with us, the Ipswich branch at 112 Brisbane St will close on July 28," the NAB spokesperson said.

"The majority of Ipswich customers visit the branch just once a year or less while 89 per cent of customers also visit other branches.

"We have contacted customers to let them know they can bank with us at the Ipswich Riverlink branch (2.3km away) or Redbank Plaza branch (15km away) and also via the NAB mobile app, internet or telephone. 

"Customers can also continue to withdraw and deposit cash, pay bills and check their account balance at any Australia Post outlet with Bank@Post such as the Ipswich Post Office."
