Brussels allows state aid for UK steel industry

In an interview with The Manufacturer publication, Charles Garfit, Head of Manufacturing for the UK at Santander Corporate & Commercial, has outlined his plans for building long-term relationships with British business on a scale that matches the banks' strong representation in Spain, Latin America, the East Coast states in the USA, Poland and Germany. He explains how over the past five years Santander UK has recruited from outside to create a team full of hand-picked experts at relationship banking, with around 700 personnel now based at 60 business centres across the UK. Ongoing training is aimed at boosting the workforce's knowledge and skills. Santander's objective is to help business customers evolve, not simply grow, and will actively encourage them to seek out new markets and new territories by making use of its international presence. Santander is particularly focused on helping fast-growth businesses. Its 'Breakthrough' initiative aims to identify, nurture and support emerging business leaders. The 'Masterclass' feature offers participants site visits and the chance to benefit from others' knowledge and experience. Breakthrough organises at least two 'live events' per region, which cover current and anticipated challenges and contributions from shared experience of larger companies. The Internship initiative helps to match high-quality graduates with SMEs that could benefit from their skills.
