Santander promises to offer over 400 apprenticeships
With National Apprenticeship Week starting on 6 March, Santander confirmed plans to offer over 400 apprenticeships across the UK by the end of 2018.


The full-time roles will be offered across the bank’s divisions, from in-branch to degree-level programmes, including opportunities in digital and technology solutions and a new finance apprenticeship.

Santander is also launching an eight-week traineeship scheme, aiming to offer over 140 places in Bootle and Bradford, which it said will ‘help young people develop their employability skills to become ready for work and potentially move on to one of the bank’s apprenticeship schemes.’

Vicky Wallis, HR director at Santander UK, said: “It is important for us as an organisation to reflect the diverse communities we serve, and part of that is recognising that not everyone follows the same path into a career. Apprenticeships are vital in providing an opportunity for people to earn and learn, offering professional development, and a nationally recognised qualification.”

The apprenticeships are UK wide and offered to anyone over 18 years, with traineeships for those 16 year olds and above. They offer skills, training and development with the potential to lead to a career at Santander, confirmed the bank.
