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.

- For roles in England, 3 A Levels (or equivalent) at BCC

Who thrives here?
Requirements for the programme are not all about your results. To us, your eligibility also comes down to your attitude, commitment and will to succeed.
Inquisitive, conscientious and raring to go - that's you. You're ready to discover new things, about yourself and within your role. Ask yourself if you're ready to commit to both work and degree-level study.

Where you’ll be based
Manchester is one of the most exciting cities to live and work in the UK. It’s a vibrant, energetic place – an important centre of gravity for business and technology, with a thriving cultural life and its own unique identity. It’s also a place where every function of the Barclays organisation is represented and is the biggest community of Barclays colleagues (over 1500) outside of Canary Wharf in London. From colleagues serving customers in our branch network or Skybranch, to technical experts developing our digital products at our Radbroke campus.
