    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Barclays.

    Interview

    Round Table Interview with 3 or more people. They go by the STAR method of interviewing so learn alot about that. Sometimes you'll also be asked to meet with a Director, if you make it to the next round and then with another Senior person within the bank. All depends on how qualified you are and how badly they need someone to fill the role.
