Whippany, NJ

As a Barclays eTrading Onboarding Analyst, you will be performing the required processes in order to onboard clients and accounts to trade electronically with Barclays for both Fixed Income and Foreign Exchange. You will ensure all clients are fully compliant with the necessary KYC, regulatory, technical requirements prior to handing off to other support teams. As a result of changes within the industry, electronic trading has become a key focus for the organization and the future of trading.

Working Flexibly

We’re committed to providing a supportive and inclusive culture and environment for you to work in. This environment recognizes and supports ways to balance your personal needs, alongside the professional needs of our business. Providing the opportunity for all our employees, globally to work flexibly empowers each of us to work in a way that suits our lives as well as enabling us to better service our customers’ and clients’ needs. Whether you have family commitments or you’re a career, or whether you need study time or wish to pursue personal interests, our approach to working flexibly is designed to help you balance your life.

If you would like some flexibility, then please discuss this with the hiring manager, and your request will be reviewed subject to business needs.

We are currently in the early stages of implementing a hybrid working environment, which means that many colleagues spend part of their working hours at home and part in the office, depending on the nature of the role they are in. We’re flexible on how this works and it may continue to change and evolve. Depending on your team, typically this means that colleagues spend a minimum of between 20% to 60% of their time in the office, which could be over a week, a month, or a quarter. However, some colleagues may choose to spend more time in the office over a typical period than their role type requires. We also have a flexible working process where, subject to business needs, all colleagues globally can request work patterns to reflect their personal circumstances.

Please discuss the detail of the working pattern options for the role with the hiring manager.
