Commonwealth Bank’s BankWest to cut 400 jobs in Australia

Australian mortgage services provider Commonwealth Bank of Australia late Sunday announced that it would cut 400 jobs at its wholly-owned subsidiary Bank of Western Australia Ltd or Bankwest across Australia. The bank cited the deteriorating national and Western Australian economies as well as a high cost base as the reason for implementing these job cuts.

According to Bankwest, around 250 back-office support roles on the west coast and 150 on the east coast will be made redundant this year.
