Santander launches recruitment scheme to attract school leavers

Santander has launched a school leaver programme for post A-level students interested in a career in financial services.

The regional head offices in Belfast, Glasgow and Bradford will offer students the chance to gain on-the-job experience in a five year structured development programme. 

 Successful candidates will gain experience via a number of customer facing roles across the bank and contact centre networks, whilst also working towards achieving their Chartered Banker Status, equivalent to a degree level qualification.

Simon Lloyd, HR Director at Santander, said: "Our most valuable asset is our people and we have a wide range of support programmes available to staff which provide for truly rewarding careers. The School Leaver Programme is an exciting opportunity for us to develop and retain talent and we see our investment in young talent as being an important step on the road to becoming the best commercial bank in the UK."
