Where will you be working?

With 120 thousands of employees and over 326 years of tradition, we are one of the largest banking company in the world. Over the years, we have come up with many revolutionary ideas that changed the way people think about their finances; whether it was the first credit card issued in Great Britain or the first ATM machine, we have always been trying to push the banking business a little further. Our Prague office is part of the Operations and Technology Division, and as such, we try our best to stay at the top of our technological game. However, the technology itself is not the most important thing. What matters the most to us is the way our ingenuity can help provide better service to our customers and make life easier for our employees.

Relocation Package

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.
