  • You’re tech savvy, hunting out what’s new on the market and how it can improve what you do
  • You adapt to change - in fact, you push for it
  • You’re a curious, creative disruptor: you’re not content with the status quo if there’s a way to do it better
  • You’re not just customer-driven but customer-obsessed: you’ll want to make our processes better for the end user
  • You’re happy talking to anyone - turning complex data into easily understood insights
  • You’ll pour over the tiniest details, making sure nothing’s been missed.

How you'll develop

We won’t throw you in the deep end on your first day. Instead, you’ll have a week learning about life in Operations. And it’s not just sitting there, watching presentations for five days. You’ll be up and about, getting involved in immersive and interactive activities that really shed light on what we do.

As part of a team, you’ll take on specific business challenges while learning about the importance of data-driven decision making. Not only that, you’ll build up practical skills to help you in your new role, and discover how we do things at Barclays. What better way to kickstart your career with us?

Beyond your first week, we’ll stick by you and provide all the support you need – making sure you have every opportunity to flourish. On the Barclays Learning and Development Programme, we put your personal and professional development centre stage, with training, courses and mentorship at your fingertips. Find out more here
