Markets is the financial barometer of world events at Barclays. So every day is different and it’s a challenging, fascinating place to build a career. We help institutional investors to identify market opportunities, manage risk and generate returns for their portfolios. Our teams provide market insights, execution services and tailored risk management and financing solutions to our clients; we help them protect their capital and make the most of their assets. And, as one of the largest investment banks in the world, we offer a full range of products and services across every type of investment market.
Perhaps you have a talent for building great relationships. Maybe you thrive on the pressure of fast-paced decision making. Or you might want to stretch your problem solving or communication skills. Whatever your strengths, you can make the most of them in one of our teams.
Your internship starts with intensive training to give you an essential platform for gaining skills and knowledge. Then, you’ll rotate through different sales and trading desks across asset classes. You’ll learn through involvement in real challenges such as: researching and reporting, monitoring markets to formulate trade ideas, analysing data and attending client meetings. All with our full support to help you succeed.
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 global economics. 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.
