In Investment Banking, we help some of the world’s biggest, most innovative businesses, and some of the world’s, most influential organisations, to achieve their short and long-term goals. The challenges in this part of our business come in all shapes and sizes. They range from acquisitions, financings, divestitures and restructurings to leveraged buyouts, exclusive sales and takeover defence. No matter which team you join, you’ll receive the very best training, as well as the development, leadership, mentoring and support opportunities to help you become the very best in banking. It’s a complete grounding in the corporate world; mixing the technical skills it takes to excel in financial analysis with the people and presentation skills it takes to turn insight into action.
This is your opportunity to experience the work that drives global commerce. Working with and learning from experts in everything from privatisations and mergers and acquisitions to equity financings and restructuring, you’ll see what it takes to deliver solutions that matter to our clients and our business. The pace here means there’s always something new to tackle, and you’ll learn constantly.
Our two-year Investment Banking Expert Programme focuses on helping you develop specialist expertise as a banker, whether you join one of our coverage or product teams. You’ll get a unique insight into our work from colleagues across Barclays, and take on your own projects with our full support. You’ll start with intensive training to ensure you’ve got all of the financial markets fundamentals you need, after which you’ll join a team focused on a key industry, product or region. You’ll work on live deals and deal proposals, learn how to put together new business presentations and discover the art of executing transactions.
This is job-based, hands-on training, as you build your skills on live projects that really matter. You’ll receive bespoke support and coaching from the very best in the business: a line manager who wants you to succeed, and a talent coach who’ll be focused on your development. Together, they’ll help you to explore, develop and achieve mastery. And we’ll encourage you to learn, at your own pace, all the skills and techniques you need to thrive in the world of Investment Banking at Barclays. Our vast suite of learning materials will always be at your fingertips. You’ll be surrounded by colleagues you can share with and learn from. You’ll gain membership of our global graduate network, with 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.
By the end of your programme you’ll have gained all the understanding and skills you need to move into a fulfilling permanent role.
We welcome people from any educational background, so long as they have a strong interest in business and finance. 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.
