Barclays profile

About Barclays

With home markets in the UK and US, Barclays is a transatlantic consumer, corporate and investment bank offering products and services across personal, corporate and investment banking, credit cards and wealth management.

With over 325 years of expertise in banking, Barclays operates in over 40 countries, employing around 83,500 people to help move, lend, invest and protect money for customers and clients worldwide.

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 and more options for people looking to build a rewarding career. Every apprentice matters to us. If you have the right attitude and you're willing to work hard, we're here to back you all the way - with all the heartfelt support and training you need.

Whoever you are, one thing's for sure: you're ready for that next step. Because there's more to discover. There's more to become.

Just starting out? Got a bit of experience under your belt? Already work for us? Whatever your situation, and whatever your background, there’ll be an apprenticeship here that suits you.

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.
