About the role

This is a unique opportunity to work within one of our Banking teams for an extended period of time, allowing you to truly immerse yourself in our work and culture and gain invaluable insight. You'll have ample opportunities to expand your horizons across different sectors and products within Banking, and across the Investment Bank as a whole. The internship programme will provide you with the support and networking opportunities you need to find your place in our world.

What to expect

As an integral part of the team you’ll enjoy many opportunities to develop your skills and add value for clients. You’ll work on live deals and deal proposals, learn how to put together new business presentations and discover the art of executing transactions. As well as getting to grips with the day-to-day full-time analyst responsibilities, the additional time you spend here will allow you to become fully involved in longer-term projects.

How you’ll develop

You’ll be surprised by what you can achieve. 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.

Who thrives here

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.
