Madrid, 20th de july de 2020 – PRESS RELEASE
Santander Brazil will launch the next edition of its Trainee programme on Monday, 27 July. This time, it will be aimed at young people able to find answers to questions that have not been asked yet. Professionals who have qualified in the past two years and students graduating before December 2020 may apply. The registration period is now open and will run until 8 September, at

The selection process has several stages and includes knowledge and skills tests, a group business challenge, a live career talk and a day for candidates to get to know the bank. All these stages will be carried out online, except for the last one, which is expected to be held on site in the second half of November. The programme will start in January 2021.

"We are looking for young people to join the bank and help us address questions that we have not even thought about. Each stage of the process has been carefully planned to attract talented people who are interested in taking part in our transformation and implementing change for the benefit of our customers and communities", explained Vanessa Lobato, executive vice-president of Human Resources at Santander Brazil.

As the largest international financial institution operating in the Brazilian financial sector, Santander will offer trainees an experience abroad. The three best performing candidates will take part in an exchange in one of the Latin American units once the programme has concluded.

Trainee development will include courses at Santander Academy, placements in different areas and job rotation: offering both specialised and general experience. The programme will run for 11 months and trainees will be assigned company executives as mentors.

There are no restrictions on courses or universities but an analytical or logical thinking background is desirable. Young people from different regions of Brazil are encouraged to apply. "We are seeking diversity in both academic qualifications and geographical origin, as this will allow us to develop leaders with a broader view of the country, able to find solutions that are not obvious", added Vanessa.

Diversity is a feature of other initiatives rolled out by the bank, as reflected in its most recent awards. It was ranked Outstanding in the Race and the Financial Sector category of the Exame Diversity Guide (for the second consecutive year). Santander is also one of the ten best workplaces for women (GPTW) and third on the list in the race/ethnic category (GPTW), and is included in the ranking of the ten "dream" companies for middle management, according to the study run by Cia de Talentos.
