Capital One – Why Work With Us?

Rip up the rulebook. Reinvent the here and now. We’re making technology work for us, so we can work harder for our customers. Wherever we go next, you’ll be part of our journey. Get ready to explore.



Whatever you do, you’ll find a home for your talent here. It takes the ideas and energy of so many people to make our business work. We like to get inventive too. So come prepared to collaborate and do things differently.

How We Got Started

Richard D. Fairbank is founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Capital One® Financial Corporation. Mr. Fairbank founded Capital One in 1988 based on his belief that the power of information, technology, testing and great people could be combined to bring highly customized financial products directly to consumers. Eight years later, we launched here in the UK. This was our first overseas venture and, in 1997, we were ready to open our £multi-million operations centre in Nottingham, creating 1,200 jobs in the process.

Today, we’re a top 10 credit card issuer both here and in the US. We also have a presence in Canada, India and the Philippines, with 40,000 employees worldwide. And with your help, we’ll continue to innovate to make our customers’ lives better.

    Great culture and benefits. In-office amenities are awesome. Lots of opportunities to develop your own workload and keep things interesting.


    Performance management system / progression can be overly competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Promote and reward associates based on individual merit and performance, rather than 'if there's a spot available at that level'.
