Working for an organisation like ours isn't all about salary or benefits. We also invest in our employees' health, wellbeing and development:-
Information and advice
Our dedicated wellbeing intranet helps employees protect their general health and wellbeing.
Our comprehensive Employee Assistance Programme gives staff and their family access to professional, independent and confidential support on issues ranging from health problems, bereavement and trauma.
Flexible work options
We're committed to supporting our people in meeting their commitments outside of work, and offer a range of flexible work options including part-time, job share, career breaks and flexible holiday options.
Learning and Development
We approach your learning journey as a partnership. Developing your skills and knowledge is going to be critical to your success, and we'll ensure you learn to excel in looking after our customers. That might mean attending a course, using an online package or being coached by an experienced member of staff.
We're strictly governed by policies and laws, so for certain roles such as those that involve giving advice on products, training is mandatory and you'll need to pass tests to prove you know your stuff. We're serious about getting it right, so we look for people who take learning seriously.
Once you're settled in, we'll want you to think about your future and how you
drive your personal development. It helps to think ahead and ensure that your career is moving in the right direction. We'll encourage you to take advantage of opportunities in support of Santander's growth and your development.
