Barclays – Why Work For Us?


BAR_Brand16_IG_0795.jpg

Wherever we are in Barclays, whatever we do, we are united and guided by one common purpose: creating opportunities to rise. Because we know that when we help our customers, clients, colleagues and society to rise, Barclays will rise with them.

In support of this great purpose, everything we do is guided and driven by our strong values of Respect, Integrity, Service, Excellence and Stewardship. These are fundamental to who we are, wherever we are, and in whatever role we have at Barclays – and they really matter to us.

Our values guide us, but we also believe opportunities are created by those who like to challenge convention, explore new possibilities and run with bold ideas. People who think differently, who bring all kinds of backgrounds, skills, experiences and perspectives with them.

We believe that a diverse, inclusive and engaged culture is vital; that everyone’s value should be recognised and celebrated; and that every colleague has the same opportunity to fulfil their career potential. We focus on five global diversity agendas: Disability, Gender, LGBT, Multicultural and Multigenerational. And we support our colleagues in their life and work through our wellbeing initiatives, dynamic working and networking groups.

We believe very strongly in citizenship – giving something back to the wider world through volunteering, fundraising and generally helping our communities and people all across the globe to rise.

Everything we do is guided and driven by our strong values of Respect, Integrity, Service, Excellence, Stewardship. These are fundamental to who we are, wherever we are, whatever role we have in Barclays, and they really matter to us. We believe that every one of us should be courageous, curious, caring and can-do.

Our values are fundamental to who we are, and they really matter. They have always shaped the way we’ve done things, and they will always shape the way we work and live, now and in the future.

Respect

We respect and value those we work with, and the contribution that they make.

Integrity

We act fairly, ethically and openly in all we do.

Service

We put our clients and customers at the centre of what we do.

Excellence

We use our energy, skills and resources to deliver the best, sustainable results.

Stewardship

We are passionate about leaving things better than we found them.

We are committed to making Barclays a great place to work: a place where every colleague feels supported, included, recognised and involved. 

A community where every single colleague can feel confident in bringing their whole self to work. 

Because when we do, we can put our whole selves into understanding our customers and clients and helping them go forward. 

We’re a place where everyone can belong. 

We believe that a diverse, inclusive and engaged culture is vital; that everyone’s value should be recognised and celebrated; and that every colleague has the same opportunity to fulfil their career potential. 

We focus on five global diversity agendas: Disability, Gender, LGBT, Multicultural and Multigenerational. Each has its own dynamic network of colleagues who are dedicated to promoting, championing and supporting these agendas. 

Dynamic Working is a flexible working model that supports a high-performance, high-trust culture that focuses on how you perform and not how many hours you spend in the office. Whether you have family commitments or you’re a carer; whether you need study time or ‘me’ time, Dynamic Working is designed for your life.

Two years before man landed on the moon, we changed the future of banking by proudly launching the world’s first ATM. Giving millions of customers’ instant access to their money, through their personal debit card, at any time, in any place.

One small step for our bank. One giant leap for banking-kind.

Fast forward 50 years and the world is a very different place, operating at a very different pace.

In a changing, challenging world, we have a great responsibility. To protect and support the lives of one in every two people in the UK and millions of customers and clients around the world. To develop, build and deliver the world-class tech solutions our customers deserve, need and want. To lead the world in digital banking, and become a truly digital business.

Who are we looking for?

Creative, curious people who love challenge and love to challenge. Commercial, customer-focused people who are agile and collaborative. People who can see the fine detail as well as the big picture. People who are excited by what we can offer, and by what they can do here. People who will redefine the future of finance.

Open minds and big ideas join us, and we’ll encourage you to push the boundaries of what you know. To strive for better solutions, chase technological innovation and develop smarter ways of working.

You’ve got the drive. The ideas. And the space to run with them. To realise the downright extraordinary.

Because with us, there’s more to discover. There’s more to become.

    Pros

    Great place to work. The scale challenge pushes you both personally and technically. They invest heavily in people and the on site facilities are brilliant.

    Cons

    Due to size you need to establish a network to get things done.

    Commercial Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Barclays (London, England) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Relatively straight forward behavioural and competency based interviews with two different managers, one being the hiring manager and the other from a different area, I assume to add extra perspective, very limited HR involvement. Not especially friendly, but not overly aggressive.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Offer was good but had impression there was little scope to negotiate
