Operations Degree Apprenticeship 2023

Getting a degree is a huge achievement that can completely change your prospects – but it’s not always open to everyone, whether that's due to the cost of university or the timing not being right. But with our Higher Apprenticeship programme, all that can change. Here at Barclays we offer a world-class programme that provides you with a permanent, full-time job with a competitive salary from day one - all whilst gaining a degree qualification from a top university at the same time. Whether you're a school-leaver looking for alternative options to the traditional university route or you're someone thinking differently about your future, we'll help you to build an extraordinary career at Barclays, no matter your background.
Why a Barclays Apprenticeship?
Operations at Barclays
No banking service happens by magic. But that’s how we’d like it to feel for our customers. And to do that, there’s one team we turn to: Operations. As an Apprentice in Operations, your data-driven observations could completely transform the way we work, what we offer and the technology we use. Working in Operations gives you the opportunity to be at the very centre of the business, with day-to-day exposure of many different areas of the bank.
If you’re not yet sure what career path best suits you, then working in Operations at Barclays offers the opportunity to explore different roles that will help you discover which area of the bank you can truly thrive in. You could be placed in a team that helps provide financial services to a large client base across our Private Bank and Wealth divisions, client reporting and reviewing tax packs, account opening and quality assurance reviews, risk awareness across Barclays colleagues, lending operations or even investigating fraud claims. There’s endless opportunity to apply your studies to real and purposeful operational work, whilst giving you the wide-spanning coverage to help you learn and progress.
