Goldman Sachs have informed employees they are expected to return to its New York City offices by next month as the bank's return to Wall Street gathers pace.
The US investment bank sent a memo to staff telling them they should be prepared to return to the offices, which are located in Manhattan's Financial District, by June 14.
It comes after Goldman's CEO David Solomon slammed remote working amid the COVID-19 pandemic as an 'aberration' and said it would not become the 'new normal' for the New York-based banking giant.
Goldman is the latest Wall Street bank to announce a return to the office after JPMorgan told staff they should prepare to be back in early July on rotation.

The return to Wall Street comes as New York Gov Andrew Cuomo removed capacity limits on offices on Monday if all employees were vaccinated.
Offices have to enforce 6-feet social distancing for employees inside offices if all staff have not been vaccinated, which would essentially restrict the number of people they can allow in.
'We are focused on progressing on our journey to gradually bring our people back together again, where it is safe to do so, and are now in a position to activate the next steps in our return to office strategy,' the Goldman memo, first obtained by Bloomberg, read.
The memo, which was signed by Solomon, president John Waldron and CFO Stephen Scherr, said different teams would be given instructions on returning to the office.
'While each community is at a different stage of managing through the pandemic, we continue to be encouraged by the rollout of vaccines in a number of jurisdictions, as well as by the effectiveness of the health and safety protocols we have put in place across Goldman Sachs campuses to protect our people,' the memo said.
Goldman's return-to-office push gained momentum back in March when CEO David Solomon slammed remote working amid the COVID-19 pandemic as an 'aberration' and said it would not become the 'new normal' for the New York-based banking giant
