Internship: Human Resources (Closed)

Overview »

The impact of people, culture and leadership allied to a deep understanding of the business is crucial to us as we build and develop Santander for the future. By joining our People &Talent (HR) Division you can be part of the team that enable each of our colleagues and therefore our business to maximise its potential.

Whether it's by identifying internal skills gaps, contributing to excellent customer service, attracting the right talent, coaching managers to support and develop their teams or finding smarter ways to work, an effective People & Talent team is core to Santander’s success.

The 10-week internship within People & Talent will give you a chance to develop skills that will get you noticed in your future career. Supported by a line manager, you will work on real business projects and gain exposure to a range of operational and specialist areas – that could include People & Talent Business Partnering, Reward, Talent, Learning, Policy, Employee Relations, Employee Engagement and Pensions. It will also enable you to understand the Industry, markets and environment in which we operate.

Location »

The internship is based in Milton Keynes, Bradford, Glasgow or Leicester, so you’ll need to be within commuting distance of one of them
