Working - and Thriving - in a Diverse and Inclusive Environment
Barclays strives to provide equal opportunities for all colleagues.

After my first week of attending the summer internship programme at Barclays, I’m happy to conclude that it certainly exceeded my expectations: superb training on financial markets and conduct delivered by investment bankers and a warm welcome from my team at Barclaycard. They even threw a massive party this week - it was their 50th anniversary and celebration of Barclaycard. I even got tickets to the Barclaycard British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park with my team! I can already say that my work is intellectually stimulating and I shape my experience in collaboration with my managers – lucky me, I have two! And my professional growth doesn’t end there. I have had over nine meetings with key stakeholders during my first week alone. The ultimate highlight of my first week was asking Jes Staley a question during his address to all summer interns, which took place within the first 12 hours of my official start. It doesn’t get any better than this.
