About us

At Capital One, we’re building a leading information-based technology company. Still founder-led by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Richard Fairbank, Capital One is on a mission to help our customers succeed by bringing ingenuity, simplicity, and humanity to banking. We measure our efforts by the success our customers enjoy and the advocacy they exhibit. We are succeeding because they are succeeding.                                      

Guided by our shared values, we thrive in an environment where collaboration and openness are valued. We believe that innovation is powered by perspective and that teamwork and respect for each other lead to superior results. We elevate each other and obsess about doing the right thing. Our associates serve with humility and a deep respect for their responsibility in helping our customers achieve their goals and realise their dreams. Together, we are on a quest to change banking for good.

What does belonging mean at Capital One?

Diversity is more than ethnicities, genders, disabilities… it’s about recognising that everyone has a unique perspective. We must leverage the strength of this diversity to create winning products and experiences for our customers. We call this Powered by Perspective. We asked our associates what belonging means to them…

Strategy Analyst - Graduate Programme 2020 

If you think Capital One is simply a credit card provider, think again. In many ways, we're more of a technology business than a finance company. We pioneered the use of predictive modelling in this industry, and today we still look at credit the way tech companies look at everything – with a view to changing the way people live, making things simpler and easier for our customers. 

As a result, you’ll find Capital One an inspiring place to launch your career. We’re an award-winning employer in part because we encourage freedom and creativity, as well as looking after our people. 

Strategy Analysts at Capital One

At Capital One, we’re always looking at ways to boost our business and give our customers a better experience. As a Strategy Analyst, you’ll take a bird’s eye view of our business, and find new ways to improve every aspect of what we do.

What you’ll do 

There’s truly a broad range of work on offer here that impacts the customer life cycle. You’ll develop coding skills and analytical abilities, you'll build models and make recommendations based on solid quantitative and qualitative analysis. You’ll look at risk, project management and how to solve problems. Finally, you’ll learn how to influence, collaborate and present across the business, and gain experience of presenting your ideas to senior leaders. 

How you’ll make an impact 

By bringing projects from initial idea to fruition, you’ll have a direct impact on customers.  You’ll help us determine who we lend to responsibly. You might help customers improve their understanding of credit for example, or how our customers can use our products most effectively. You’ll make sure our marketing reaches the right customers and ultimately your work will help our customers succeed with credit. 

What you’ll need

You’ll bring an intellectually curious mindset, along with a strong grasp of commercial basics. We look for people who thrive in a collaborative environment. You’ll work well with others, but you’ll also be focused on growth and development – both yours and ours. 

You’ll have excellent numerical ability and be ready to develop skills in coding, structured analysis and influencing skills.
