The Santander Group is, by some distance, the largest bank in the Eurozone in regards to market calye. Indeed, by that metric it’s also one of the biggest in the world, with assets totalling over over €1.266 trillion and profit of €5.816 billion for 2014.

It’s also a very old one, founded in Santander, Spain in 1857 – 160 years ago. However, despite it’s success and age, Santander is a relatively new player in the the UK banking sector, arriving only in the mid 00s. Interestingly though, Santander’s UK foothold came from the buyouts of three former major players in UK banking – Abbey National, Alliance & Leicester and Bradford & Bingley.

Abbey was bought out by the Santander Group in 2004 for £9 billion, giving the company their first UK foothold. 2008 would see the purchased of Alliance & Leicester in September, shortly followed by a large number of Bradford & Bingley branches and assets, which had been nationalised as a result of the financial crash.

By early 2010, the Bradford & Bingley and Abbey brands were retired and replaced with Santander branding, becoming Santander UK. Promoted with a huge ad campaign featuring F1 star Lewis Hamilton, the adverts coincided with the simultanious launch of 300 Santander branches across the UK. Later in the year, the Alliance & Leicester brand would also be retired.

Today, Santander’s customers in the UK count more than 14 million and their staff numbers north of 20,000 in over a thousand branches.

Santander pitch themselves as a friendly, local bank, and this certainly comes across in their marketing where they invite people to visit their local branch to discover their latest range of accounts, which include current accounts, savings accounts and credit accounts. They also have a range of loans and mortgages to choose from.

Santander’s customer service

Unfortunately for Santander, between 2007 and 2010 the bank was ranked worst for customer service in the J. D. Power UK Satisfaction study. This led to the bank facing significant public scrutiny. In 2011, the bank’s credit rating was downgraded by risk management company Moody. Thankfully by 2012, their stability had improved, something that was acknowledged by Moody. Today, the Santander helpline and customer service is much better than it was a couple of years ago. As a result, customers can have faith when calling the Santander contact number.

Where are Santander’s call centres?

As of July 2011, all call centres operated by Santander are based in the UK. This marks a change from their initial setup which was located, primarily, in India. This was a holdover from the days when the company was Abbey, Alliance & Leicester and part of Bradford & Bingley. Commenting on the call centre move at the time, Santander’s head of customer service said: “This is what our customers have told us is the most important factor in terms of the satisfaction with the bank, and we have listened to them and decided to bring all of our retail call centres back from India.”
