What to expect
The next generation of tech talent is in high demand. Here at Barclays, we grow our own, with apprentices joining our global centres of technical excellence. In fact, more than 10% of our community of 4,000 experts joined us as apprentices.
For you, that means the chance to start a life-long career full of opportunity and support, where you’ll deliver critical work across our digital world. From new apps to improved platforms to the latest in cybersecurity, you’ll learn to build and deliver innovation – and you’ll learn that you’re capable of more than you imagined.
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 Technology roles in England, that’s 3 A Levels (or equivalent) at BCC, and for roles in Scotland, it’s 4 Highers (or equivalent) at BBBB including Maths or Computing.
Technology roles are wide-ranging – Developers to Analysts to User Experience Designers – so you don’t have to become a coder to thrive here. What you do need though is the will to learn and the commitment to see your programme through. And of course, you’ll need a keen interest in helping us create the future of our bank.
