Santander Work Café: Creating a vibrant hub for nurturing new business ideas and fostering collaboration
This July, Santander bought its successful concept, the Work Café to Leeds City Centre. First developed in Chile in 2016 and since grown to over 50 Work Cafes globally, the workspace in a previously closed branch, offers free co-working spaces, meeting rooms and events to local businesses and entrepreneurs.
Together with fellow Workspace speaker Peter, Andy has been working on the launch of the Work Café hub in the UK. In particular, he has been responsible for the property, technology and operating model workstream. Andy joined Santander 10 years ago as a Senior Regional Manager for the branch network and over the last 5 years has been responsible for Retail Infrastructure delivery. Before joining Santander Andy has worked for NatWest Bank
