Santander UK plc, part of the Santander Group, is a leading financial services provider in the UK. We offer a wide range of personal and commercial financial products and services.
Our success is built on our focus on retail and commercial banking. We‘ve consistently delivered strong financial results, with profits and revenues that are balanced by strict cost-management and responsible lending. This has enabled us to be one of the most efficient financial service providers in the UK (1). We’re also committed to building our presence in small-and-medium sized enterprises, mid-corporate lending and retail commercial banking services. This growth will help us to provide a more balanced banking business.
Our vision and aims are clear, and we’ll achieve them by earning and keeping the trust of the public and our stakeholders. Recognising the impact our business makes on the community and environment, we aim to make a wholly positive contribution, treating everyone with honesty and fairness.
Of course, the success in achieving our vision and aim are down to one thing: our people, who are passionate about truly listening to our customers to make banking more simple, personal and fair. And change like that doesn’t happen unless we all speak up with new ideas and challenge things that could be better. That’s why we’ve built a culture of respect, where everyone supports each other to keep their promises and go above-and-beyond – every day.
As our business grows and improves, the opportunities for our people will do the same. We are committed to supporting and nurturing our people to help them as they deliver their personal best, in a culture that knows everyone counts. And that’s not gone unnoticed. This year, we’ve been named one of the Times '25 Best Big Companies to Work For' and 'Top 50 Employers for Women'.
