I’ve been with Barclays since 2010. My journey has been very exciting and full of growth and learning. I started as Financial Analyst and moved through multiple roles across Barclays Retail, Barclaycard, Investment Banking, Operations and Technology and now Risk. During this time I’ve grown both personally and professionally – Barclays really helps you balance the two.
I’m a mother of young twins. I was promoted to Vice President while I was in the family way – the global leaders offered me the role based on my merit, knowing that I wasn’t too far from my maternity leave and held the role till my return. It wasn’t an easy decision considering the nature of the role, however it inspired a lot of colleagues, myself included.
The inclusive culture and access to leadership makes Barclays a very special place to work.
I was highly motivated to resume work, however after some time I wanted something more challenging to justify time spent away from my toddlers. That’s when I took a horizontal move into Risk to satisfy my desire to learn new things and to challenge my abilities in a new area. I pushed myself out of my comfort zone to keep on my learning journey. My ability to make a positive difference at work drives and motivates me. My role in Risk has constantly evolved. It has been a big learning experience for me.
My current role of Service and Business Manager for the Risk Team is really interesting. I am responsible for creating the Centre of Excellence for Service and Business Management across Risk, by establishing core commonality and best practice. I drive execution for a sustainable strategy: this includes driving pan–Risk activities for increased colleague engagement. In my role I constantly have to strike a delicate balance to empower my team but still be there for them. At times I make decisions based on my instincts, but it has always felt that we are in it together.
I joined as an Analyst and my mindset to bring positive change around me has brought me so far. There is a lot more to explore, and so much to enjoy. At Barclays dynamic working gives everyone an opportunity to integrate their professional and personal lives.
