Santander bucks trend to expand graduate scheme

1st March 2010

Santander has launched its new graduate scheme, signalling its continued commitment to investing in graduate jobs at the company. The bank has increased its planned number of graduate recruits in the UK to around 230 in 2010, as well as refining the scope of the scheme across key business areas.
All graduate recruits receive comprehensive formal and on-the-job training, which provides them with the knowledge and experience needed to grow within the Santander business and reach their full potential.

Simon Lloyd, HR Director, Santander said: "The uplift in the number of graduates we are taking on demonstrates the strength of the Santander approach to banking. We see our investment in graduates as an important step on the road to becoming the best commercial bank in the UK."

Two entry routes are available to the new intake of graduates. The accelerated entry allows graduates to immediately enter the workforce within a specific role with subsequent promotion based upon merit. Alternatively graduates can enter a more traditional programme that sees them experience a variety of roles across a specific business area over a three-year period.
