Meet Genelle


I’ve actually worked at Barclays for more than 10 years – first as a Cashier, then as a Moment Banker. I was eager to progress my career, but I made the decision to stay on in Retail until my children were old enough to give me more flexibility.

When I first came across the Higher Apprenticeship programme through the Barclays intranet, it was a bit of a miracle. I was giving some serious thought to moving on, continuing my studies and getting a degree, but I didn’t know how I’d juggle it or afford it. Then I found this programme.

It’s amazing that as a Barclays colleague, all these opportunities are right at your feet. There’s nothing to stop you from going for it, and the Higher Apprenticeship programme is just the thing to get you on your journey. Everyone has a chance at getting a place, and once you’re there, the level of support is overwhelming. 

Your background, your age, your department – all of that just doesn’t matter.

Even at application stage, you’ve got incredible support on your side. There’s a whole team to help you manage the transition into your new role, and to help you plan for the future. What makes it special for me is how we’re all treated. From being a Cashier to being a Moment Banker to being an Apprentice, it’s clear that Barclays genuinely cares – and that means everything.
