Kick start your career with a Santander traineeship

Want to become ready for the real world?

Santander’s eight week traineeship programme is the perfect way to develop your employability skills and gain fantastic work experience. You could even secure an apprenticeship with them. No experience required!

The programme begins in Bradford on the 5th June 2017 and will last for 8 weeks.

The first three weeks of this Customer Service traineeship will consist of interactive workshops delivered by expert BPP tutors. Designed to help you to develop the skills required for the world of work, you will improve your Maths and English skills along the way.

You will then carry out three weeks of work experience with Santander in Bradford, giving you exposure to an exciting live working environment. This opportunity will allow you to put your workshop learning into practice and develop your skills.

At the end of your placement, you will complete a portfolio with evidence of everything you have learned – you can use this when applying for an apprenticeship or job. It will show your future employer how you have developed your skills over the programme.

Afterwards, you could even secure an apprenticeship with Santander with a very generous starting salary of £13,750!
