The Discovery Diversity Programme is an amazing opportunity for students from underrepresented groups, who are graduating between December 2024 and June 2025 to be assessed for, and to apply to join, our internships in 2024 before anyone else.

It’s the chance to learn about a career at Barclays, the chance to find out a lot about the business world and to discover a bit about yourself. And, as you’ll gain a good understanding of the full selection of roles and opportunities we offer, it’s a perfect stepping stone to one of our internships.

Quantitative Analytics

Our Quantitative Analytics team is a global organisation of highly specialised modellers and developers responsible for researching, innovating, developing, testing, implementing, and supporting all quantitative models used for valuation and risk management across all asset classes. The ability to articulate your ideas will be crucial as you work closely with business partners to develop models and tools. Joining a group that partners with traders and stakeholders across the bank, you’ll gain the widest exposure to a variety of modelling techniques and instruments to help drive business strategy.
