Internship: Operations (Closed)

Overview »

Being part of the Santander Operations Internship Programme will provide you with an unrivalled opportunity to gain an insight into Santander’s operating model and processes. This 10 week programme will expose you to a number of different work challenges, all with a predominant aim of enhancing the customer experience.

You’ll need plenty of drive, as you’ll be involved in major change projects and be expected to contribute your own ideas on how we continue to improve our business. You will usually work within one specific division within Operations, where you will be exposed to a number of different work challenges, all with a predominant aim of enhancing the customer experience. They are also very hands on roles, where you will be able to get an initial understanding of the different Operations areas, and how key levers such as people, processes and systems are utilised to achieve organisational objectives.
