Join Barclays Corporate & Consumer Banking, and you’ll find yourself working in one of these areas: Barclays Payments, Retail Banking and Private Banking, or Corporate & Consumer Banking. Each has an important role to play in helping our customers and clients achieve their goals in life. The Explorer Programme builds an extraordinary depth and breadth of experience through a deep dive into a chosen business area. By the end of your programme you’ll have gained all the understanding and skills you need to move into a fulfilling permanent role.
Barclays is leading the way in enabling customers to use their credit cards and make payments in new ways. Bring us your enthusiasm, technical skills and analytical mind to help us stay one step ahead. We’ll give you an unrivalled insight into our fast-changing business, and all the training and expert support you need to explore where your talent will take you. This is a challenging and rewarding opportunity.
Barclays Private Bank works closely with high-net-worth clients and their advisors who have complex banking and investment needs, both in the UK and across the world. We are here to understand their situation and their aspirations, so we can help them to reach their goals. We harness a global network of knowledge, expertise and professional partners to meet our clients’ unique requirements. Whatever they want to achieve, our Private Bankers and specialists create the personalised solutions that will help them achieve it.
Our two-year Explorer programme develops your understanding and expertise through a deep exploration of three vital areas: Product, Strategy/Business Management and Relationship Management. As part of this programme you can achieve two professional qualifications: IMC, which is mandatory in Year One, and CFA (Level One only), which is optional in Year Two. You’ll gain international exposure to our business and build a close relationship with the Corporate and Investment Bank, as you help our clients build on their achievements and fulfil their potential.
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 in Barclays. You’ll be surrounded by colleagues you can share with and learn from. You’ll get lifetime 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.
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.
We’re committed to making Barclays everything it can be – for our customers, for our clients and for the future of our business. So we need graduates who are ambitious self-starters who’ll give their all for our customers. We welcome people of any educational background, but you should have a keen interest in business and finance. 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.
