Encore – Return to work programme

We’re ready to welcome back talented, experienced professionals like you, who have been out of the work place for at least two years. People who are great communicators, collaborators and influencers, who have built strong stakeholder relationships in previous professional/managerial roles. You should share our passion for continuous improvement, with a focus on innovation and the ability to engage and enthuse people at all levels.

Hear below from two participants of the 2016 Welcome Back Programme. This programme has now been renamed as Encore.

Gill Blaire – 2016 Welcome Back Programme participant

Our three month programme, located in our Canary Wharf head office, starts in October (with five days holiday available to take at any point). We’re keen to meet people who would consider a career with Barclays at the end of the programme so it’s important that we create real opportunities to connect and get to know one another during the application period. To support this we’re hosting a networking day on Monday 11th September in London where you can meet business leaders and colleagues, ask questions and learn more about our business, our goals and our culture.

We’re ready to help you choose from a wide range of business areas – from Digital to Wealth to Mortgages and to give you coaching and a dedicated sponsor who’ll open doors, open networks and support you every step of the way.

If you’re ready to go forward with us, we’re ready to talk to you.

Closing date for applications: 31st August 2017

For support with your application: If you are unsure if this is the right programme for you and would like to speak to one of Barclays’ team regarding the Encore programme, please email BarclaysUKEncore@barclayscorp.com and one of the team will be in touch.
