The banking industry is changing. We need our people to think differently which, means we need to train and develop you differently. Joining the Barclays UK Spring Insight week will mean being at the forefront of a new way of banking. Whether it’s working collaboratively to build new customer and client relationships, providing integrated product solutions, getting immersed in innovation and digital thinking or partnering with senior leaders on strategic projects, you’ll be challenged every step of the way. Our Insight week provides the unique opportunity to develop the breadth of experience you need to build a successful career within a changing industry, whilst gaining the training and support to explore where your talent belongs.
All you have to do to begin with is research which of the Spring opportunities suits your skills and ambitions, and then tell us you’re interested. That’s it. Give us your CV and a few basic details, helping us to make sure we’re doing everything we can do to encourage diversity, and we’ll get back in touch to let you know what happens next.
During this stage you’ll be provided with a number of realistic scenarios giving you a real insight into what you’ll expect as part of our Spring Insight week and helping you understand our industry.
Unlike the other assessments you might have tried, our innovative platform means this isn’t just an exercise in how fast you can type. You’ll find multiple choice questions and space to record video responses too. This way we can get a fairer impression of how you work and what motivates you.

The Business scenario stage should take no longer than 35 mins to complete.
If you have been successful we will make you an offer and we’ll be in touch to discuss the next steps with you. If we can’t take you through this time our process should give you the insight and experience to help you find a role in the future.
What can you expect?
Improve your outlook in just one week. Give us a week in spring, and we can show you the ins and outs of two of Barclay’s large, successful businesses.
You’ll gain a unique understanding of our different business areas and at the end, you’ll have a clear idea of what we do and where you might fit. If you take part in our Spring Insight week you’ll automatically be considered for a summer internship the following year.
How you'll develop
Our Spring Insight week will provide you with the perfect introduction of technical and business knowledge and soft skills training to start building your career. Through work shadowing, workshops, interactive skills sessions and networking opportunities, you’ll gain an incredible insight into a career with Barclays UK and Corporate Banking. There will be presentations, case studies, an assessment centre survival workshop and even a few social events.
Who thrives here?
We’re looking for forward-looking people with an advanced set of skills. Agile, curious, digitally savvy people who can absorb new techniques and use them adeptly. But they also need the traditional networking and relationship building skills needed to develop the long term relationship that our business thrives upon and which will always be vital.
We need people who truly understand the need to develop a holistic understanding of our banking products and services, the customers and clients we serve and crucially, how our divisions work together.
Whilst you’ll have a great support network to help guide your development we’re looking for people with an entrepreneurial flair, who have the drive and determination to drive their own career and take advantage of all the great opportunities that our business has to offer.
