Job description

Higher Apprenticeship

Getting qualified. Whether it’s a degree or professional status, it’s a huge achievement that can completely change your prospects – but it’s not always open to everyone. Some of us can’t afford it. For others, the timing just wasn’t right. But with our Higher Apprenticeship, all that can change. At any point in your life, we'll help you gain a university-level or professional qualification while building an extraordinary career at Barclays.

What do I need?

To be eligible for our Higher Apprenticeship in Operations or one of our Functions, you'll need:

•             For roles in England, 3 A Levels (or equivalent) at BCC

•             For roles in Scotland, BBBB in your Highers (or equivalent), any subject

Who thrives here?

Requirements for the programme are not all about your results. To us, your eligibility also comes down to your attitude, commitment and will to succeed.

Inquisitive, conscientious and raring to go - that's you. You're ready to discover new things, about yourself and within your role. Ask yourself if you're ready to commit to both work and degree-level study.

We'll be opening applications for our Higher programmes later this year - click below to register your interest.
