Whichever area you join, you’ll work in a varied and dynamic technical environment across a range of operating systems (including Windows, Unix and Linux) as well as working with C++, Java, C#, VB, VBA, SQL, Perl, Oracle, Linux, Python, Hadoop, scripting languages, grid computing and real-time systems. The challenges you’ll face could include:
- Enhancing the functionality of systems and applications
- Analyzing code to find new process improvements
- Writing scripts for data pulls and analysis
- Developing user interfaces for applications
- Working with business areas to understand and meet their needs
How you’ll develop
During your time on our graduate program, our formal and informal training will give you the knowledge you need, when you need it.
First up is our Initial Training Program (ITP) – a cross-divisional classroom training program where you’ll learn financial markets fundamentals, as well as technical and professional skills. By the end, you’ll be equipped with everything you need to know about our firm, the markets we operate in, and how your role fits in.
Once you’ve spent a few months in your role, our Continuing Learning curriculum launches, unifying and refining the concepts that you’ve learned during ITP and the practical training you’ve completed with your team.
Our Program Management Team is committed to helping you achieve your goals at Barclays. Throughout the program you will receive career guidance, continuous performance coaching and feedback to keep you on track. Your managers and colleagues will be here to support you too.
When you complete your time as an analyst, you’ll have a number of options open to you, including placement into an exciting role right here at Barclays.
Who thrives here
The variety of work means that we look for skills in everything from programming, developing and systems design to network engineering, database management and project coordination. Ideally, you should have a Computer Science major, but this isn’t essential.
