Additionally, you have the flexibility and choice to create a benefits package that’s individual to you. Barclays colleagues can also take advantage of a wide choice of voluntary benefits, with discounts and tax advantages on many of them.
We’re a global organisation: our horizons are far wider than those we can see from the office window. In our Prague office we have 40 different nationalities working together to redefine the future of finance. To support those joining Barclays we are open to considering relocation packages based on personal requirements.

Barclays Prague is a close, friendly and supportive community. Not just because we are a community of technologists, although that’s obviously central to our culture. We enjoying spending time with each other, and the atmosphere is very relaxed and not corporate – we see no need for suits or silos. We find many ways to enjoy our time together, in and out of the office – from sports and games to parties, volunteering and hackathons. We’re a very diverse team, and people feel appreciated for who they are. We work together, play together and are stronger together.
Barclays understand how important it is to balance work with life commitments. That’s why dynamic working was created to help our colleagues achieve an optimal work-life balance. It is an innovative way of thinking and approaching working arrangement, a model that supports a high-performance, high-trust culture focusing on how you perform and not how many hours you spend in the office.
We’re professional here, and everyone can manage their own schedule. I work from home on Fridays, and many of my team work from home too. Everyone here loves their responsibilities, and it’s up to them to define a schedule that works for them, and for their colleagues.
