Answer Digital Ltd

Based in Leeds and London, Answer Digital Ltd are a provider of digital transformation and software development to the NHS, retail, automotive and financial sectors. With an international footprint they specialise in software and IT consultancy, helping build niche skills and connections. With long standing blue chip clients they specialise in digital transformation and software design, development, integration and testing services.

The funding provided by Santander has helped support Answer Digital with its ambitious plans to move towards an employee ownership structure.

This has allowed them to pursue their continued growth plans while creating 30 new roles in the business.

Santander took the time to really get under the skin of our business and understand both the market drivers and our culture.

As an employee-owned company, we have put our people at the centre of our growth plans and created a truly inclusive culture.

It was a real boost for everyone in the business for Santander to back our vision and plans for the future.

Founder and Managing Director, Answer Digital Ltd

In addition, over 50% of the workforce is now made‑up from talent that has come directly from the company’s own academy.

This model has seen graduates fast‑tracked to become IT consultants.

Answer Digital has an excellent track record, and an outstanding team of people who are ideally placed now to drive forward the next phase of their growth.

We’re delighted that Santander was the bank of choice to support a rapidly growing business to realise their continued ambitions.
