Employer Profile

Founded in 1690, in London, Barclays now operates in over 40 countries across the globe. It has business in retail, wholesale and investment banking, wealth management, mortgage lending and credit cards.

They look for highly intelligent and numerate graduates. Equally, they require graduates who inspire the people around them, bring a fresh perspective and work collaboratively within a team.

Training Programmes

Barclays offers training tailored to different roles. For some roles that require a broader skill set graduates rotate through different placement areas. For other roles requiring more specialised knowledge the training is narrower and more in-depth.

Training begins with an intensive period running for one to six weeks providing insight into global business, the Barclays vision, values and culture. This period develops professional, technical and personal skills. Once graduates are settled into the Barclays way the training becomes more in-depth. Formal training is supplied via practical and classroom-based teaching, talks from senior managers, development modules, competitions, projects and around 300 online learning resources.

Support is available through a mentoring scheme and graduates are supported towards relevant professional qualifications.
