About Barclays

Barclays is a British universal bank, with over 325 years of history and expertise in banking. Barclays operates in over 40 countries and employs approximately 83,500 people.

Barclays was the first bank to appoint a female bank manager, introduce ATMs, and launch credit cards and contactless payment. From the products and services we develop to the partnerships we build, we seek to improve lives and drive growth that benefits everyone.

Ever since we launched our apprenticeships, we've worked hard to create more options for people looking to build a rewarding career.  Our apprentices bring us fresh

ideas, boundless energy and new perspectives that help shape our business. Many of them are now in senior roles, driving our business forward.

Apprentices at Barclays are transforming their careers. If you’re thinking about your next steps, think differently. Think Barclays.

Foundation Apprenticeship

As the name suggests, our Foundation apprenticeship is all about giving you the foundation to build a trailblazing career at Barclays. It's a chance to move forward and achieve your ambitions - at any point in your life. As a Foundation Apprentice, you'll take on a role in one of our business areas (we'll tell you more about that later) and work towards professional qualifications. All with constant support and plenty of personalised training.

Higher Apprenticeship

Getting qualified. Whether it’s a degree or professional status, it’s a huge achievement that can completely change your prospects – but it’s not always open to everyone. Some of us can’t afford it. For others, the timing just wasn’t right. But with our Higher Apprenticeship, all that can change. At any point in your life, we'll help you gain a university-level or professional qualification while building an extraordinary career at Barclays.
