In Investment Banking, we help some of the world’s biggest, most innovative 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 group you join, you’ll have the flexibility to find your passion and develop in a host of different directions.
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.
Capital Markets is organised into several specialist areas covering equity and debt origination, loans, structuring, risk management and syndication; these areas operate within four business units, including Debt Capital Markets, Risk Solutions Group, Equity Capital Markets and Leveraged Finance. The opportunities and challenges in this part of our business come thick and fast – and in all shapes and sizes. No matter which area you intern in, you’ll learn from the best in the business, immerse yourself in our culture, and be involved in real projects.
You’ll be surprised by what you can achieve in one summer. From beginning to end, we’ll do everything in our power to make sure you get the very most from your internship.
We’ll surround you with challenging projects and opportunities to grow and learn. We’ll keep you motivated with encouragement, feedback and support as you build your leadership skills, technical know-how and business acumen. We’ll help you connect with mentors, and network with colleagues and senior leaders alike. You’ll get the chance to give back to the community through volunteer events. And if you really impress us, this could be the beginning of an incredible career. We invite top-performing interns to join us as full-time analysts after graduation.
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 – motivated by pace and pressure and driven to achieve and search for the best solution. You’ll also be 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.
