About Us

Barclays is a British universal bank, diversified by business, by different types of customers and clients, and by geography. With over 325 years of history and expertise in banking, Barclays operates in over 40 countries and employs approximately 83,500 people. Barclays moves, lends, invests and protects money for customers and clients worldwide, but our competitive advantage doesn’t just stem from this ability. It’s also down to the quality and character of our people. They live and breathe a set of values – respect, integrity, service, excellence and stewardship – that we won’t compromise at any time for any reason. Show us you can bring them to life too, and you’ll go far.
