Risk Analyst II Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milton Keynes, England (UK)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview


I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Grupo Santander (Milton Keynes, England (UK)) in March 2012.


Very firendly and welcoming interviewers. Puts you at ease straightaway. They do not try and trick you and catch you out like other companies. Interview consisted of competency-based, situational, technical, business line and case study. Overall it took about 2.5 hours. Questions are very relevant. The case study is very relavant to the position you are applying for.

People are very friendly and it is a very relaxed working environment. There is a good training budget as well. Even as a new starter, you are encouraged to be involved in various tasks and projects and it provides a very good learning opportunity to entry and experienced analysts.

It is a very stable company. Although a Spanish bank, it is not impavted by the Spanish economy. Santander UK is a very formidable brand.
