Operations Higher Apprentice Programme 2022

What to expect

The structure of your apprenticeship will depend on your location and what’s available there, but wherever you are, our Operations opportunities guarantee two things. The first is hands-on experience of the ways Operations guides and drives our bank. The second is committed investment in your development, with mentors, coaches and line managers all there to guide your individual path.

How you’ll develop

You’re setting out on a significant journey with us – up to 4-5 years, depending on your programme – and we invest in your development at every step. That starts with our market-leading Talent Coach model: from day one, you’ll be assigned a talent coach matched to your needs and background, and together with your line manager, they’ll support you as an individual. We’ll also match you to an expert in your specialist subject, ready to share their knowledge.

You’ll also learn a lot from your team too in your full-time role with us. Whether you’re improving our mobile banking app in Technology; learning our regulatory obligations in Functions; or analysing the data behind our transactions in Operations, you’ll be doing real work, gaining impressive experience, and learning from the colleagues around you.

Then, there’s your studies – either a degree or a professional qualification. Either way, you’ll have ring-fenced study time to help you balance your workload, and e-learning to help you study in a way that suits your lifestyle.

Who thrives here

First, you’ll need the right qualifications. For Operations roles in England, you need 3 A Levels (or equivalent) at BBB, and for roles in Scotland, it’s 4 Highers (or equivalent) at AAAB, including Maths or Computing.

Beyond the basics, we’re looking above all for enthusiasm to learn and commitment to work hard. You’ll also need to be collaborative: Operations touches on all aspects of life at Barclays, so it means lots to take in and plenty of people to talk to. If you’re ready for it, it means access to experts across Barclays – all with advice to help you think differently about your future and what you could do.
