Get involved in real projects. Learn what it’s like to be part of a Barclays team. Set yourself up for the future with an internship at Barclays.

Internships in Europe and Middle East

The pace is fast. The challenge is set high. Our internships will give you an intensive experience of life at a global bank. You’ll pick up invaluable skills and experience. 

Whether you are an undergraduate, MSc, MBA or PhD student in your penultimate or final year of study, or you’ve already graduated, there is a huge variety of opportunities to choose from. So whatever your circumstances and availability, you needn’t miss out.

Summer Internships

Beginning at the end of June, this 8 to 10 week programme starts with a training course where you’ll gain skills, network with other interns and build your understanding of the bank and our industry.

Real experience in real teams

There’s nothing more valuable to you than working on real projects, carrying out a real role and integrating fully into a team. So you’ll apply to and join a specific division. That division is where you will benefit from further learning events, presentations, meetings and networking opportunities.

Extra opportunities

We’ll throw many your way – all designed to build your skills and experience. In Wealth and Investment Management, for instance, you will tackle The Pursuit, our specially created internship challenge, which gives you the opportunity to pitch to a client. Or, you may be set an objective to initiate meetings with a number of Directors and MDs. In Corporate Banking, you’ll be given a special project to complete, the results of which you’ll present to a panel of senior managers.

How we’ll reward you

You can expect a competitive salary, several benefits and plenty of recognition for your achievements.  


Where you work depends on which programme you join – and some roles are ‘UK wide’ which means you could be placed in any of our locations nationwide (though we will try to accommodate any specific requests).

Other Internships

Need to get experience at a different time of year? Or looking for a longer internship? We offer off-cycle internships of anything between 6 weeks and 6 months. Our Corporate Banking division in Ireland also offers a one-year industrial placement.
