Supporting people with disabilities

At Barclays, we’re fully committed to increasing opportunities for people with disabilities and mental health conditions.

To move forward, we’ve launched campaigns and continually consider different recruitment models. We’re also introducing new internships and apprenticeships.

This is me

In 2014, we launched our flagship campaign – This is Me – to tackle the stigma around mental health in the workplace. The basic idea was simple. Real colleagues would introduce themselves with their own personal story. And, as in real life, their mental health condition and how they manage it would be just part of that story. Three years later, This is Me has gained incredible momentum, helping people not only within Barclays but across the City of London feel able to speak out and break cultural silences.

A brand new internship

In the UK, one of the ways we’re helping to make Barclays more accessible to all is through our new internship: Able to Enable. Open to people of all ages, this scheme aims to provide valuable workplace experience, while addressing some of the myths surrounding the accessibility of banking. We’re delivering it in partnership with diversity and inclusion specialists, Remploy.
