An inside view
You’ve got the facts, but what could your day-to-day really look like with us? Hear it straight from our current apprentices:
There’s honestly something special about the Barclays programmes. You get great training, but there are also constant opportunities for you to give back – to share the knowledge you’ve already built up over your career. That’s not something you find at other banks – and certainly not for over 25s.
My current manager has regular catch ups with me to see how I’m getting on, and sometimes I think he has more belief in me than I do! I’ve always got someone looking out for me, making sure I’ve got time to study and putting me up for opportunities.
I’ve had some massive opportunities to influence and make a huge difference to Barclays, even after only being in the bank and on the programme for six months. The belief you get from senior leadership is incredible, and makes me so proud.
Before I started at Barclays, I had just left school after finishing my GCSEs. I was at a bit of a loose end, to be fair. Life was good, but I wasn’t doing much and wanted to start something new – something I’d enjoy. I knew I wanted to try and find a good apprenticeship rather than going back to school or college. Then I found Barclays.
A career that keeps building
You’re not just signing up to some one-off training here. Finishing your apprenticeship is only the start. Whether you go into a full-time role or decide to take on the Advanced Apprenticeship, you’ll build momentum with us. Momentum that could also see you go to the next level and beyond with a Higher Apprenticeship. It all depends on what you want to do, and where you want to go. Here's what Nat did:
Once we’ve got them, we like to hang onto our Apprentices, to keep developing their potential. After finishing the Foundation programme, the majority of our Apprentices embark on the Advanced Apprenticeship, taking their first steps towards becoming a qualified specialist. You can only apply for the Advanced programme after Foundation, but it’s the chance to gain a higher qualification, and nail down what you want to do with us.
