Our culture

"Capital One provides the best of all worlds. We offer challenge, dynamism, diversity, hard work and early responsibility. But we also offer a strong team spirit, a no-blame culture, a balanced lifestyle and perhaps, most importantly, the chance to have fun. We consistently involve our people in everything we do, and ask them how we could make Capital One even better.

We constantly innovate. This creates an environment that embraces change and a continual need for flexibility. It also means there are opportunities for you to work on a range of interesting and stimulating projects; many of which will be simply ground breaking. We value entrepreneurship and aim to recruit people who not only have smart ideas, but the drive and determination to make them a reality. You'll be encouraged to develop and grow alongside the company. As a result, we're not afraid to promote young people who are great at their jobs and develop their careers based on merit and ability."
