Santander UK has issued its first quarter 2022 results this morning – a first quarter that has continued the momentum built during 2021 with profit from continuing operations before tax increasing to £495m. This has been underpinned by another strong performance in the mortgage market. Our transformation programme continues to focus on digitalisation and meeting the changing needs of our customers. This is backed up by our resilient balance sheet and prudent approach to risk. As households across the country face rapidly increasing cost of living, we stand ready to support our customers and provide them with practical advice and tools to help them manage their money. We will continue to look at the impact that the rising cost of living is having on our customers so we can provide them with the right support and help them navigate their way through the challenges the country is facing.

    The interview process was professional. I had two back to back interviews with associates at the company. I was asked mostly behavioral questions but also some technical questions. The interviews were both around 30 minutes.
