Steve's story

“I was playing basketball at college and was going to stay on when I heard about the Barclays Apprenticeship Scheme. 

I was a bit nervous before I started, but everyone was really welcoming and supportive. It’s great because you have real work from the start – and immediate responsibility. I started in web platform support and now work in encryption on big projects with people from around the world.

The most exciting part of my role is our contingency training. We get together as a team and recreate what we’d do if our data center blew up – it shows how the team need to be prepared for this.

In terms of career progression, the sky’s the limit. If you’ve got the drive to want to progress, Barclays will allow you to do this. I’ve been promoted twice in three years.

The Barclays apprentice scheme is life changing. It can be scary to try new things, but it’s very supportive here and it’s great to develop your skills.”
