Our key focus is on finding the best talent – and, once we’ve found it, helping it thrive. As well as an award-winning health and wellbeing programme, we offer tailored development and support to develop and shape everyone’s career.

Communications & Community

We help communicate business progress, new initiatives and successes, as well as motivate our associate base and boost their engagement. Our team is very much like a family. We work hard in a very fast-paced environment. We’re fun, innovative and pride ourselves on being the best – and we push the boundaries to take things to the next level.

We do all that we can to support our communities, the environment and our associates too. Being active in the community is part of our DNA. We've formed strategic national and local charitable partnerships that develop employability and financial capability skills in young people and other vulnerable groups. Our associates support the partnerships through volunteering and fundraising, but are also empowered to organise community activities for charities close to their hearts.

We work with all areas of business management to provide ongoing assurance over their ability to identify and manage risk, and proactive advice in support of change within their business functions.

Reimagine Everything

Money influences everyone in some way, shape or form. At Capital One UK, it is our common purpose to ensure this influence is a positive one on our customers' lives.

We are an information based lending company, founded on the belief that technology and information could transform the industry. Still led by our founder with that vision, we are a successful global bank and one of the UK's top credit card providers supporting millions of customers. We continue to transform at pace and work at the forefront to bring the best to our customers and help them succeed. 

Our team is relaxed, flexible, and full of smart, driven people with heart who are working together to develop the next big things. We are proud to have received the Glassdoor Employees' Choice Award for 2018, recognising us as one of the Best Places to Work in the UK.

Ed Byrne is famously known as a standup comedian, actor and writer. We teamed up with him to show how our superstars of tech are reimagining how people deal with money. Just because we work with credit cards, doesn’t mean we aren't creative with our ideas. Don't believe us? Watch our video!

Nottingham is our home in the UK, but we’ve recently expanded our London operations to join the tech folk at the White Collar Factory in Old Street.

Our transformation from financial services company to tech-led business makes us a pretty special place to work. We draw on the latest tech to achieve our purpose. We think it’s good to share too – be it collaborating on projects, expertise, insights or opinions. Everyone’s contribution, everyone’s ideas are worth their weight in gold here. So we value everyone that works for us. 

How we work


It all starts here. Find your future. Find your feet. Defy your expectations of what a graduate career can be. Leave your preconceptions behind.

Get it straight from the horse’s mouth. Ask our people. They think we’re the bee's knees. Which is why we’ve been voted in the 'Top 5 of Great Place to Work'.


Amazingly bright people, a sharing global workforce and jelly that sticks to the wall? Comedian and self-confessed nerd, Ed Byrne talks to our tech revolutionaries to find out what keeps us in the Top 5 places to work.


What makes the superstars of the tech industry so drawn to Capital One? Is it the way we disrupt the industry? Or is it that we have all the craziest ideas? We asked Ed Byrne, top comedian and self-confessed nerd, to investigate.


Ed Byrne, Comedian, Tech Enthusiast and all-round nice chap hears how different people from different backgrounds are trying, and doing new things that they’ve never done before at Capital One.


A company so flexible that you can always get home to your dog that’s scared of the dark?! Ed Byrne, Comedian and Tech Enthusiast, discovered that this, cool people and doughnut eating are just a few of the things that make us such a great place to work


We believe in looking after our own. Happy, healthy people make for a happier, healthier business. So we’ve given a lot of thought to how we can make our benefits work for everyone. Some things come as standard; others you can pick and choose. We’re all different, so your needs will be too.


Benjamin Franklin once said, “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” This is our kind of aphorism. We believe you know best when it comes to your own development. Seek out the opportunities that are right for you and you’ll find us a very supportive partner. We also think you learn better by doing. So expect to get involved in projects rather than sit in a classroom.


We work hard. We work often – and we love every minute. Talent comes in lots of different forms. Fortunately, so does what we do here. It takes so much and so many to make our business work. So there’s bound to be a discipline to suit everyone. Come in and take a look around.
