Group Functions

Group Functions
  • Compliance

    Barclays is committed to building a world-class team of Trusted Advisors within its Compliance function – one that safeguards our clients, employees, and reputation.

    We have partnered with the University of Cambridge Judge Business School to create the new Compliance Career Academy, to invest in our people to ensure that we all have the technical Compliance capabilities to meet these high standards. 

    As an independent control function, Compliance helps to protect the interests of the firm while promoting a strong and visible Compliance culture throughout Barclays.

    We provide regulatory advice and guidance, while maintaining a risk-based program designed to prevent, detect, and address violations of applicable laws, rules, regulations, policies, deviations from industry standards, and other relevant standards.

  • Finance

    The integrity and accuracy of our financial records is of utmost importance for us, our regulators, our investors and  our community. With so many people relying on the outcome, this task falls to our highly skilled Finance colleagues.

    Bringing a variety of specialities, as well as fiercely analytical thinking, our Finance team advise and support all our businesses with high quality reporting and accounting services. The teams aren’t just experts at interpreting figures, they also uphold Barclays’ vision and values as integral business partners who help drive strategy. So whichever team you work in, you’ll develop the technical and business know-how to influence decisions that affect a whole host of different products and initiatives.

  • Human Resources

    The role of HR in supporting the Barclays of the future is incredibly important. This diversely skilled team works to deliver and support our strategy, instilling excellence through a high-performing HR operating model. Together, the HR team helps make CEO Jes Staley’s strategy a reality, embedding a positive values-driven culture.    

    Our people are passionate about delivering for clients and shareholders, with the energy to drive transformation. So whether you're partnering directly with the business, supporting change, recruiting or developing top talent, involved in talent management or succession planning, managing employee relations, or shaping our compensation philosophy, your skills are vital to our success.

  • Internal Audit

    Internal Audit is an independent and influential control function that’s critical to our business right around the world. You’ll be joining a global team of around 650 people, trusted at the highest level to undertake work that helps change our business for the better.

    Our reputation across Financial Services sets us out as a market leader, known for our innovative thinking, vision and commitment to developing our people. We want you to help us maintain that approach, driving change across the bank. At the same time, our global management team will help you drive your career ambitions.

  • Marketing

    From potential retail customers to corporate clients, our marketing team helps communicate the benefits of banking with Barclays. Every day, they work with teams across the business to promote our products and services and win new business.

    When you come to marketing, you’ll find the chance to explore a wide range of specialities. Whether it’s branding or advertising, social media or events, our teams are constantly looking at new and creative ways to help attract and retain customers. So, whichever team you work with, you’ll build your skill set and even gain professional qualifications as you help us achieve our commercial objectives.  

  • Operations

    Global Markets Operations is the engine responsible for ensuring the execution and servicing of all products and services. Our core objective is to deliver service excellence by executing our processes in the safest and most efficient way, leveraging automation and 'Lean' approaches to achieve this.

    The environment in which we operate is continually changing. Global Markets Operations plays a key role in driving market initiatives and regulatory changes and, by ensuring we are ahead of competitors on these initiatives, continually helps to drive down costs and increase revenue.

    Around 3,000 colleagues work in Global Markets Operations globally, and our ambition is to make our organisation a truly excellent place to work, with the best possible opportunities for colleagues to succeed and develop their careers.

  • Risk

    Risk affects all parts of life. In business this ranges from the financial risk through to people, process and systems risks. This is the team that ensures that risk is monitored and controlled in order to protect our financial performance and reputation for excellence.

    We’re a resilient bank with a long history. The sharp technical acumen of our Risk professionals has a lot to do with that, working to identify, assess and minimise risk across our business. So whether you’re addressing the implications of an economic downturn, a financial crime or advising leaders across the business, you’ll learn from the best across a range of disciplines.   

  • Treasury

    Treasury is the bank’s bank. Here you’ll get a great overview of how a bank is set up and run, plus plenty of international exposure. Join us, and you’ll find insight into how we balance the supply and demand of money and capital, to create sustainable value for our business. 

    Treasury manages our money, invests our capital and makes sure each business area has enough cash to service its clients. This dynamic and diverse team also decides how much to hold in reserve and sees that we have enough capital to cover the unexpected. What’s more, it reassures our regulators that we’re financially secure and stable. Whatever you do here in this exciting area of the bank, your efficiency and good judgement will be undeniably critical.
