We’re Capital One

You might think of Capital One as a credit card provider. But in many ways, we're more of a technology company than a finance company.

That's to say, we look at credit the way tech companies look at everything – thinking of better, smarter and easier ways to do things that will really change the way people live.

And one of the happy consequences of making finance simpler and more human for our customers is that Capital One is also a more inspiring place to launch your career.

We’re #11 in Glassdoor’s ‘Best Places to Work In The UK’ list

We got this recognition by practising what we preach. We make work life informal, flexible and simple, so our people can get creative. (Our £32-40,000 starting salaries and other perks are probably factors too.)

We’ll train you while you work – you’ll have a buddy, a programme mentor, and you’ll even get to meet the CEO. Our Learning and Development programme means you will always be moving forward with the help of a supportive network of knowledgeable and experienced managers.

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…

We’re looking for graduates

As one of our graduates, you’ll be empowered to get straight into the action. So you’ll be training and working at the same time on one of the following programmes:

  • Strategy Analyst
  • Software Academy
  • Operations
  • Data Analyst
  • Data Science (Post-Graduate)
  • Risk
  • Finance Analyst
  • Brand Marketing
  • Design

Each role is a permanent contract. You’ll typically spend the first two years rotating around different teams – learning about each area by getting stuck in. So you’ll barely have time to pick up your security pass before you’re heading up big projects, and you’ll be involved in decisions that affect the whole business. Right from the off.

Ultimately, you’ll be helping us find creative ways to humanise finance.

We’re looking for interns too

If you’re in your penultimate year at uni, an internship could help you jump the queue onto one of our graduate programmes. This year, three of our graduate streams or programmes have internship spots:

  • Strategy Analyst
  • Data Science
  • Software Academy (we run a Software Academy year in industry placement too).

This is your opportunity to embark on a 10-week masterclass. You’ll be working on impactful projects that will enable you to make a genuine difference to our customers. 

Our intern salaries start at £22,000 pro-rata (what you’d get if you worked the full year), with a £1,000 signing on bonus.

We work in the following sectors

  • Banking
  • FinTech
