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.

Would you like to be a Software Academy Intern?

If you’re in your penultimate year at uni, an internship could help you jump the queue onto one of our graduate programmes. 

Over ten weeks, you’ll be taking on real projects and development training. You’ll have a buddy on your team, a programme mentor – and you’ll even get to meet the CEO. You can also expect to:

  • Hone your skills across the technologies that power our business – and that’ll keep us one step ahead.
  • Build a whole host of personal skills – like brilliant tactics for showcasing your ideas.
  • Experience a range of teams so you can decide where you’d most like to take your career.

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…

You’ll have the basics down

You don’t need to be on a Computer Science degree course, but you’ll need to be able to program. We don’t expect you to be an accomplished developer – just enthusiastic and a quick learner.

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. (Although the high starting salaries and other perks are probably factors too.)

All our interns get an £18,000 pro-rata salary (what you’d get if you worked the full year), with a £1,000 signing bonus.
