Around 50 Norwich jobs are shrouded in uncertainty after Virgin Money closed its charity arm, Virgin Money Giving.
The call centre for the charitable giving service is located in the city, with those impacted set to be consulted on potential jobs elsewhere in the group.
It is thought the Norwich-based team, who have been working remotely since the pandemic hit, will be reduced by around 26 people.
A spokesperson said the company was considering the future of its Norwich office.
They said: "Most colleagues are working from home so we're considering future office requirements.
