The opportunity

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 Analysts at Capital One

You’ll come at problems from fresh new angles. You’ll be brimming with ideas (and not afraid to share them). And you’ll keep our whole organisation on the right track. You’ll use data to solve problems and drive change that leads the whole industry forwards.

What you’ll do

There’s a huge range of work on offer here that makes a real difference to our customers. 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. We’ll be asking you to interpret data and a range of other insights to make the right decisions for our business and customers. Plus 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 concept, to market, 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 change the way they live, by helping them succeed with credit.

What you’ll need

It doesn’t matter what degree you have. What does matter is that you bring a curious mindset, along with superb problem-solving skills. 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 strong maths skills. Plus you’ll be keen to develop skills in coding, structured analysis and influencing skills.


We are currently unable to consider applications from candidates who will require ongoing sponsorship.
