187,000 employees worldwide
Since entering the UK market in November 2004, we’ve seen sustainable and organic growth, all while transforming the three businesses which we acquired. As we develop a culture that turns ideas into actions, and actively rewards innovation, we look to a future where the creativity and integrity of our people continues to support our strong position both, in the UK and globally.
Founded in Northern Spain in 1857, Santander is a commercial and retail bank with a presence in 10 core markets in Europe and North and South America. We are the largest bank in the euro zone by market capitalisation.
We have around 14,392 branches (more than any other international bank), over 187,000 employees and more than 102 million customers.
The relationship with our customers is long-standing and built on trust and confidence. In difficult times, knowing the people who you borrow from and lend to is a distinct advantage. Our customers are also spread across the world and our strategy is to have critical mass in each of our core markets, enabling us to operate efficiently and offer our customers the best in products and services. We’re as diverse in our products and services as we are geographically – so we’re not exposed to any single market or county.
