Before coming to Barclays I had some preconceptions about being in a corporate environment but it’s been completely different to what I’ve imagined. You meet so many different people, you learn so many different skills and you can be yourself.
One of my proudest achievements at Barclays was designing and building fraud training for Barclays colleagues. This training has now been launched successfully across Barclays globally. I’m really proud to have worked on this project because I’ve educated thousands of colleagues across Barclays to protect their customers and clients.
Barclays supports me with my study and work by providing me with a dedicated mentor and coach, who will help me with anything that I may need. I also get dedicated study days, where I’m able to go and work on whatever it is that I need to do outside of my day-to-day job.
I’ve learnt so many skills since starting the Higher Apprenticeship programme – from improving my time management skills, which was done by balancing my full-time job alongside my university degree, as well as learning how to lead people and get the best possible results and get the best that we can out of them.
You know the big picture now, but what’s it really like to experience our Higher Apprenticeships? Let some of our current cohort tell you about it:
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.
My current manager has regular catch ups with me to see how I’m getting on, and sometimes I think he has more belief in me than I do! I’ve always got someone looking out for me, making sure I’ve got time to study and putting me up for opportunities.
It’s been a life-changing experience. I have been put in a position that I could have only dreamt of, and I’ve made my family so proud.
Our interviews aren’t about trying to trip you up. The fact is, we want everyone to do well. The more diverse talent we can enable, the better. That’s why we’ve put together an in-depth guide to our Higher Apprenticeship application process – so that you can prepare and get ready to succeed with us.
