That unexpected opportunity. That spark of collaboration. That sense of pride when your hard work pays off. It’s these kinds of moments that will define your experience at Barclays. We’ll let our people tell you about theirs.

Banking
“Investment banking has something of a reputation. I was expecting it to be all work and no play, and the environment to be highly competitive and cut-throat. At Barclays, it's not like that at all. It's fast-paced, yes, and it can be challenging at times. But the atmosphere's amazing: there's a real team spirit, and we always find time to have some fun.”

Markets
“I was working at the Reserve Bank of New Zealand before I joined Barclays. Coming from a relatively small central bank in a relatively small country, I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but it didn't take long for me to realise just how global Barclays was. Though based in Singapore, from the start I was working with colleagues in Tokyo, London and New York.”

“As part of the Foreign Exchange (FX) sales team, my role is all about building and maintaining relationships with corporate clients, trading houses and global asset managers. Every day, I'm in touch with these people – in person, on email and over the phone. But the best part of the job is actually developing hedge strategy proposals and executing FX flow.”

“When I started working at Barclays, I had high expectations. And I'm happy to say that each and every one of them has been met. The environment is truly international but at the same time very friendly. The people are extremely talented, but also open to new ideas. And the culture really does reflect the company's core values.”

Functions
“Two things that really stand out for me at Barclays – and I think two of the most compelling reasons to join – are the people who genuinely care about each other, and the culture which encourages all of us to be our authentic selves.”

“To my mind, Barclays definitely has the best graduate programme on the street. I expected to be working in a fast-paced environment. And I expected to be surrounded by intelligent and passionate people. What I maybe didn't expect was that they'd all be so eager to share their knowledge and passion with me. It's been an invaluable experience and I've learned so much.”

Markets & Research
“I joined Barclays as a direct hire in a back office support role straight from school. I didn't know what to expect at first, but over time I found myself drawn to Sales. And was pleasantly surprised by how supportive the Bank was in helping me to make that move via a place on the graduate programme.”
