Research is an ideas factory. We dig deep into the underlying factors that affect the world’s financial markets and provide insights that empower our clients to take key strategic and investment decisions. Research is a centre of subject-matter expertise on the companies, markets and securities that we cover, delivering real-time intelligence and long-term vision. It’s vital to the performance of our global investment bank.
This internship will put you right at the heart of the action. We’ll give you the skills and knowledge to get involved in the incisive, responsive analysis behind ambitious business strategies. From there, you’ll begin applying an analytical approach within your team, building your capabilities across a wide range of challenges including valuation, accounting and financial modelling. We’ll give you a true understanding of the importance of high quality, innovative research, and encourage you to take every opportunity to show us what you can do.
You’ll take on responsibility from day one with in-depth training to kick-start your learning, a line manager to guide and challenge you, and a buddy and mentor to support you as you build your knowledge and skills. You’ll work closely with a senior analyst to analyse industry trends and company financials, taking on a wide range of challenges from building financial models and gathering insights, to producing reports and developing marketing ideas.
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 analytical mind and a strong 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.
