The person who decides whether there is a job vacancy is most probably the branch manger, and maybe for the branch manager's job, the human resources for the whole of Barclays bank will decide whether there is a job vacancy for that job. There could be many reasons why there would be aa job vacancy, for instance: - A person could have retired - A person may have been made redundant - A woman may have left for pregnancy leave - A new branch could have opened and they will need staff In the matter of the last case, many jobs would be needed so everything like advertising, job descriptions, interviewing etc will have to be done on a much larger scale.
