Meet our graduates

Stephanie

I was a part of the Technology Graduate Program and the best part about it was the rotations where I got to try different roles. I was a Support Analyst and then I switched over to a Business Analyst role, so seeing the different parts of the bank and how they work was really interesting.

Technology is what’s driving the business, and I think that’s especially true when you work in an area like electronic trading, where if you had no technology you would have no business. The clients are coming because they believe that we have the best technology to serve their needs, and so I think that’s a great example of Barclays investing in technology.

From day one, everyone was always receptive, they are willing to help and I guess for someone starting like myself that was the best thing, the best situation to be in. I wasn’t on my own trying to learn everything, people were helping me and guiding me through the way.

I can’t think of a single business process that technology doesn’t play a critical role in. I’m seeing major investment in technologies in start-ups fostering innovation in the fintech space.

The main interesting thing about the [grad program] rotations was that you get to experiment with different roles within technology, so I was a developer in the first rotation, I came to understand what part of development you had to do, what kind of role it is, and the next part was a Business Analyst which I really liked, so I continued to stay in the same team even after the grad rotation program.
