We’re currently updating our application system. This means that from 25 June until our new system is live in July you won’t be able to apply for a job on this site. You can still register your interest in our opportunities by submitting your full name and email address via our TalentPool. We'll keep you updated and let you know when applications are open. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, and we appreciate your understanding.

Adjustments to the recruitment process

We are committed to attracting and retaining a diverse workforce, and our commitment to inclusion means we want to ensure that candidates with disabilities and long-term conditions receive support and adjustments in the application process and beyond. 

During the recruitment process you can share as much information as you feel comfortable with. Your application and your needs are unique, so sharing your specific requirements and asking questions about the application and selection process will ensure we can best support you during the application process.

We therefore welcome all candidates, whether already in an existing role at Barclays or thinking of joining us, to share any support, advice or adjustments that would assist them during the application process either in the application form itself, or by emailing yourresourcingsupport@barclays.com.

We also encourage and welcome feedback on our application process so we can continue to improve our candidate experience for the future.

If you have a disability, if you are neurodivergent, or if you have a health condition that may affect you during the application process, we would encourage you to discuss adjustments with our team.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

At Barclays we are committed to building an inclusive and supportive culture to provide equity of opportunity for diverse talent at all levels to grow. We believe that every individual should have the opportunity to fulfil their potential and achieve their personal and professional goals. Valuing the perspectives of colleagues from diverse backgrounds enables us to better understand our customers, clients and the communities we serve and also strengthens our culture, encourages innovation and enables us to make better decisions.

Our twelve global Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) play a critical role in achieving Barclay’s ambitions for diversity, equity and inclusion. They provide valuable support and advice, create development opportunities, and raise awareness of issues, challenges and initiatives.

Reach, our disability, mental health and neurodiversity ERG, helps to support our colleagues with disability, mental health and neurodiversity in the workplace to achieve their full potential. Members of Reach include colleagues who are disabled, neurodivergent and have long-term health conditions, but is also open for all colleagues to join, if you want to support a colleague or family member, be a great inclusion ally, or are interested in learning more for awareness.

Workplace adjustments

The support we offer throughout the recruitment process doesn’t end after the application.

We know that people have different needs in the application process and at work, which is why we want to help everyone at Barclays get the support they need.

Barclays is committed to providing all colleagues with the support and tools they need to have a productive and fulfilling career. We can consider making adjustments to remove or reduce barriers you might face if you have a disability, health concern or mental health condition.

Workplace adjustments (or accommodations) help us do this and can be considered for all colleagues.

Some of the adjustments we’ve provided for colleagues include but are not limited to:

  • Ordering specialist equipment (like assistive technology and ergonomic furniture)
  • Adjustments to objectives or targets
  • Changing working arrangements, using flexible working or regular breaks
