There’s no other business quite like Barclays. We are a consumer, corporate and investment bank, one of the world’s largest and most respected financial institutions, with a heritage of success, quality and innovation stretching back over 325 years. Operating in 50 countries and employing around 85,000 people across the globe, we help millions of communities, millions of individuals and millions of businesses thrive. And we’ve created financial solutions and technology that the world now takes for granted.
This is a new world, and we’re redefining the future of finance for the digital age. Our industry is being revolutionised, and our customers are behaving differently. We have different competitors, and a different role to play in society. We’re redefining our roles, the way we work and the services we provide. All of this will take the talent and commitment of our colleagues, and we are committed to supporting everyone that works here to develop and enjoy a rewarding experience and build a truly rewarding career.
There’s no other business quite like Barclays. There are no other careers quite like ours. We’re redefining the future of finance.
Together, we rise.
Our common purpose is "creating opportunities to rise". We are a company of opportunity makers, working together to help people rise – customers, clients, colleagues and society.
"By creating opportunities for people to rise we recognise that Barclays rises too". We’ll measure and reward our people, not just on commercial results, but on how they live our Values and bring them to life every day. And we’ll judge our success on a balanced scorecard of impact.
Working at Barclays
In support of this great purpose, everything we do is guided and driven by our strong values of Respect, Integrity, Service, Excellence and Stewardship. These are fundamental to who we are, wherever we are, and in whatever role we have at Barclays – and they really matter to us.
Our values guide us, but we also believe opportunities are created by those who like to challenge convention, explore new possibilities and run with bold ideas. People who think differently, who bring all kinds of backgrounds, skills, experiences and perspectives with them.
We believe that a diverse, inclusive and engaged culture is vital; that everyone’s value should be recognised and celebrated; and that every colleague has the same opportunity to fulfil their career potential. We focus on five global diversity agendas: Disability, Gender, LGBT, Multicultural and Multigenerational. And we support our colleagues in their life and work through our wellbeing initiatives, dynamic working and networking groups. What’s more, we believe very strongly in citizenship – giving something back to the wider world through volunteering, fundraising and generally helping our communities and people all across the globe to rise.
