Providing service support to more than 90 million Santander customers, and over 171,000 Santander employees, in more than 14,000 Santander branches, Geoban UK was created in December 2007. We’re always looking for new ways to deliver consistent, high-quality services as cost efficiently as possible - leveraging Continuous Process Improvement, Technology and Automation, Central Managements & Control Functions and Corporate Alignment.
Join our Graduate Programme, and you’ll have the opportunity to make an immediate impact while playing a vital role in our mission.
During our two year rotational programme, you will complete four assignments, normally lasting around six months. You will also gain experience in a variety of areas, working on a mixture of different projects, some of which may be internally focused, while others will involve external customer projects. The rotations will see you move to different teams in key parts of the business, giving you the chance to learn about teamwork, and demonstrate your innovation, commitment and excellence. You will receive training and mentoring to help you perfect your leadership skills and realise your full potential.
These roles are based in Bradford, Bootle and Milton Keynes, although some travelling may be required to other Geoban and Santander UK offices.
This programme involves four placements across different parts of the Geoban business, examples of where you may be placed include:
