The bank manager is now on annual leave. Does that sound familiar?
And I’m not just talking about last Monday (they are after all entitled to a bank holiday). The traditional bank manager, who knew and understood your business is no more, and is being replaced by call centres and online chat services.
According to Which? 2,900 bank branches have closed over the last three years across the UK. And this has had an impact on the numbers of small businesses who no longer have access to a local and experienced bank manager who can support their business. So, the Bank Manager is now on Holiday for 365 days a year!
The bank manager has disappeared, but luckily ASC are still here.
