Apprenticeships and Work Experience

We know how frustrating it can be when you are looking for work but do not have the required experience. Here at Barclays, we recognize there are many talented individuals that are looking for their first step into a great career.

We are offering two programmes that can support this:


Our exciting programme is aimed at young people aged 16+. We recruit based on attitude and potential rather than experience and qualifications. As a Barclays Apprentice, you will benefit from invaluable work experience, a competitive salary and also on-the-job professional training towards a vocational qualification. At the same time you can look forward to the natural rewards that come from making a real difference to our customers’ lives too.

Work Experience

At Barclays our doors are wide open for people who are prepared to learn the ropes, work hard and provide great service to our customers. Our Work Experience Programme is one way in which we are working with local communities to give young people a real understanding of the world of work.  This programme offers a structured taste of working life to young people, providing an opportunity to showcase the range of jobs available within financial services.
