It gave me that appreciation of it being a bigger business than just my desk, a pile of bigger functions that all need to work together.
The start of my career here at Barclays has been very involved, very hands on with a number of projects that I’ve been working on.
It’s enabled me to really learn on the job, get a feel for what the clients are like; I was going out to client meetings, working with the team and really coming up with solutions that helped everybody two months after joining Barclays.
Changing systems, pricing and models. Resolving issues. Validating results. That project gave me great confidence.
