About us

Whether you join our Foundation or our Higher programme, you’ll be starting a career with Barclays: one of the world’s leading consumer, corporate and investment banks. Our two home markets are the UK and US, but we operate in over 40 countries, employing around 140,000 people worldwide. We’ve got over 325 years of experience in banking, and we invest in our apprentices as the future of that business. After all – they’re not your average apprentices.

Why work for us

Let’s talk myths – and how to bust them. When it comes to apprenticeships, we’ve heard it all. They’re not real work. They don’t pay. They’re only for certain kinds of people. And here’s the biggest myth of all - they’re not for someone like me.

Well, we’ve got news: Barclays Apprenticeships are for everyone. You might be 16 or 55. School leaver or returning parent. A few qualifications in your pocket, or none at all. Whoever you are, whatever your background, this is the chance to get new qualifications and move forward with us.

What could my future look like with you?

We invest a lot in our apprentices, and we want to hold onto all the talent we find. That means every programme we offer - from Traineeships to Foundation Apprenticeships to Higher Apprenticeships – is just one step on your journey. You might finish one programme and start on the next – or go straight into a full time role with us. What you achieve is up to you.
