We have graduate and internship opportunities in areas right across the firm, including: Business Banking, Corporate Banking, Investment Banking, Customer Banking Solutions, Wealth, Group Function and Technology.

The Graduate Programme

The Graduate Programme is our key future talent stream and new joiners will typically enjoy early exposure to business-critical projects, gaining valuable experience as they work alongside senior managers as valued members of the team. The programme kicks off with a comprehensive introduction to Barclays products and services, offering a thorough grounding in the financial markets, and continues with a range of presentations, case studies and workshops. Graduates can also expect to undertake role-specific training and one-on-one mentoring.


Most of our internships last for 9 weeks over the summer, although we do have off-cycle opportunities too, for up to six months in duration. In all cases, you’ll find yourself at the heart of the action. You’ll gain real experience in a real role, working on anything from live transactions and marketing projects to research and analysis, according to the business area you join. As well as benefiting from extensive training before and during the programme, you’ll have regular opportunities to network with intern colleagues, recent graduates and senior members of the firm.

Spring Programme

For first year students, or those in their second year of a four year course, we offer a week long insight programme giving you the opportunity to find more about the firm through presentations, training sessions, work shadowing & networking opportunities.
