Retail and Business Banking

Future Leaders Development Programme

With nearly 50 million customers in over 50 countries, Retail and Business Banking is a major force within Barclays. It’s crucial to how we do business: giving our customers the right level of service, whether they’re a multi-million pound business or a single customer with a single account.

The Future Leaders Development Programme (FLDP) is a  programme designed to put you on a fast track that prepares you for life as a leader in a global bank. You will work closely with senior leaders on projects that affect our strategy in many different ways, influencing how we work as a business, and how we help clients to bank, borrow through loans or credit cards such as Barclaycard, save and invest for the future, or find insurance. There are a range of both full-time and internship opportunities, plus our Spring Insight programme.

You’ll develop your personal and professional skills, while building your commercial knowledge and your leadership potential. We’ll provide you with everything you need to grow into a fully rounded leader, whether it’s technical skills training, a leadership development curriculum, developmental masterclasses or the opportunity to gain professional qualifications. 

The variety of opportunities on offer means it’s also the launch pad for any number of top-level careers across Barclays, and on the following pages, you’ll find a snapshot of the different paths you can take on our Future Leaders Development Programme (FLDP).
