Millions of people, businesses and corporations across the globe rely on Barclays. From helping people buy their first homes to enabling companies to grow; from the day-to-day personal finances that make life possible to the massive investments that help whole economies thrive, Barclays is there. Every minute of every day. And none of this can happen without the smooth-running, ever improving systems behind the scenes. Payments need to be processed. Credit card systems need to be maintained. Trades, equity transactions, debt financing — all of these must be verified and swiftly processed. Our Operations and Technology teams.
Our Technology Explorer programme is an immersive, hands-on, two-year programme. As an analyst, you’ll enjoy structured rotations throughout your programme, with one rotation potentially taking you into a related team. Working with business areas to understand their needs and convey them to teams of developers, you’ll help drive forward change and help us find innovative solutions to complex problems. You’ll join the team behind some of the industry’s biggest innovations – from the first talking ATM to Blockchain and Siri payments– and see bold ideas transformed into practical, real-life solutions.
You’ll learn continually, from start to finish – whether it’s the hard skills you need to be brilliant at your job, or the professional skills to be brilliant in a business of this size, we give you the essential learning experiences you need to play a full role in Barclays. At all times you’ll be supported by an experienced line manager and a talent coach who together will help you realise your potential and discover where you’d like your career journey to take you. You’ll be surrounded by colleagues you can share with and learn from. You’ll gain access to our global graduate network, offering exclusive access to content, events and forums to support you and help you develop. And you’ll get the opportunity to have an impact on the communities in which we live and work.
What’s more, you might qualify for a bursary towards your professional development. By the end of your programme you’ll have gained all the understanding and skills you need to move into a fulfilling permanent role.
To make the most of this opportunity, you’ll be curious and creative, tech-savvy and adaptable. You’ll be great at communicating and collaborating, competitive but caring. Motivated by pace and pressure, you’ll be driven to achieve — and to do it right. You’ll also be customer-obsessed, ready to develop a deep understanding of what we do, why we do it, and how your role impacts on our business outcomes. These are qualities that people at Barclays have in abundance, and we’ll help you develop and strengthen them from the day you arrive.
