If you’re the kind of person who isn’t afraid to put themselves out there, then you’re the kind of person we’re looking for. Risk management, the careful consideration of risk versus reward – is at the heart of banking.
Across four rotations in different Risk departments, you’ll build the solid foundation and breadth of experience that’s necessary to become a knowledgeable and highly credible Risk professional. We want you to be exceptional – to surprise yourself. That’s why we’ll support you with a development plan that’s tailored to your needs, and then track your progress through regular one-to-one meetings. Every six months we’ll assess your performance, give you a formal rating and, if we think you’re ready, give you greater responsibilities.
Mainly based at Santander House in Milton Keynes, every six months you’ll have the opportunity to rotate into one of the other risk teams to increase your knowledge. There could even be opportunities for secondments abroad to Spain, Brazil or the US to see how other Santander risk functions operate.
To join the programme, you must have or expect to gain a 2:1 degree (or equivalent) in Maths, Statistics, Sciences, Engineering or Economics. Along with having a passion for business analysis, you’ll need exceptional numerical reasoning skills and the ability to communicate complex analysis to a non-technical audience.
