About Capital One

We issued our very first credit card way back in 1996, and have since grown to become one of the UK's top ten card providers.

From day one, our business has been about helping people succeed with credit: from innovative tools like our QuickCheck eligibility checker, to the way we're driving positive change across the finance industry. It's no wonder we're the only card provider with a 4-star rated credit card from Fairbanking.

Recognised by Glassdoor as one of the ‘Best Places to Work 2018 and 2019’, we are on a mission to change banking for good.

*Candidates should note that as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic our offices are currently closed and this role will be fully remote until it's safe to reopen.*
