As a Barclays Internal Audit (BIA) Manager - Corporate and Investment Banking, you will have an exciting opportunity to be working with Audit colleagues to contribute to BIA’s vision and work with our Auditee’s to secure an improved and enhanced Governance and Control environment across Barclays. This is underpinned by role modelling the Barclays mindset and values in all that we do.

Barclays Europe is an inspiring place to be: we’re building a truly European bank with the support of one of the world’s largest and most respected financial institutions. We have a clear mission, huge sense of momentum and the energy of a new business. All of which means we can offer agile, determined and resilient people a platform for remarkable professional and personal growth.
