Markets and Research

Markets and Research Sales Trading Research Quantitative Analytics Trade Capture Utility
  • Sales

    Key to the growth of our clients’ businesses – and our own – our sales teams deliver informed, up-to-the-minute advice, and an around-the-clock service. As a Salesperson, you’ll work with high-profile institutional clients. These are organisations that have significant capital to invest – pension funds, insurance companies, central banks and the like. It’ll be your job to match our products and services to their needs. It means often thinking beyond the obvious, always acting responsibly and partnering with colleagues from across the bank. A real people person, you’ll have a flair for relationships as well as a talent for analysis and numbers.

  • Structuring

    Structurers are entrepreneurs and project managers. Our goal is to set Barclays apart from our competitors by creating innovative investment ideas and solutions. Sitting in the front office between Trading and Sales, we work closely with Trading to develop ideas and make sure products can be efficiently hedged in the markets. We also provide content to sales teams and technical expertise in client meetings. As we develop and market products, our work involves liaising closely with our legal, compliance and quantitative teams, too.

    Join us and you’ll be part of a dynamic environment that gives you the opportunity to learn a lot quickly. Working with many areas of the business, you’ll build a strong internal network. You’ll also develop invaluable communication and problem-solving skills.

  • Trading

    Our Traders trade a wide range of products across a variety of markets. They’re highly focused and need to think on their feet. The products we trade vary from foreign currency and credit to interest rates and equities (stocks). Whatever area you work in, you’ll stay abreast of market movements in order to make informed decisions that build your clients’ trust, as well as the strength of their portfolios. It’s fast-paced and demanding, but also team-driven. So expect to collaborate with colleagues in Sales and other areas of Markets. Enjoy ample support whilst using your analytical skills to the full.

  • Research

    Our Research team digs deeper into what’s driving the world’s financial markets and economies. The ability to articulate and present succinct, accurate and insightful messages is crucial here. You’ll learn to react swiftly to market movements, cutting through the noise to provide instant yet thorough analysis. And you’ll spend time thinking analytically on sector and global trends to generate powerful investment ideas. All while building relationships with some of the bank’s most important clients. Joining us in Research, your work will empower our clients and our business.

  • Quantitative Analytics

    QA gives us the innovative tools and models we need to work more accurately and effectively. It’s an invigorating environment. And its breakthroughs keep us at the forefront of our industry. You’ll learn how to provide modelling, analytics development and expert advice across trading and our Risk and Treasury functions. And, alongside other teams, you’ll help deliver solutions for risk management, changes in markets structure, capital utilisation, derivatives pricing and strategic technological advancements. If you’re logical, love solving problems, enjoy teamwork and have strong maths and programming skills (C++, Python), you’ll soon make an impact. 

  • Trade Capture Utility

    TCU supports our Markets business by capturing trade information quickly and accurately. With colleagues across the globe generating huge amounts of trades daily, that’s no mean feat. The TCU ensures all trades placed are entered accurately, accepted with the right terms and reviewed or adjusted as needed to manage risk. This team works with colleagues across Trading and Sales; weighing in on the design and implementation of system architecture to support trade capture. Your highly analytical mind coupled with your knack for processes – along with our support – will help you succeed here.
