Internships - Operations

Millions of people, businesses and corporations across the globe rely on Barclays. From helping people buy their first homes to enabling companies to grow; from the day-to-day personal finances that make life possible to the massive investments that help whole economies thrive, Barclays is there.

Every minute of every day. And none of this can happen without the smooth-running, ever improving systems behind the scenes. Payments need to be processed. Credit card systems need to be maintained. Trades, equity transactions, debt financing — all of these must be verified and swiftly processed. This essential work is down to our Operations team.

About the role

This is your opportunity to get a real feel for how we do things at Barclays. Our Operations teams are a hive of activity and opportunity, and you’ll be involved in a wide range of challenging and fascinating projects. There’s no better introduction to the importance of data-driven decision making in a global financial organisation.

What to expect

You’ll take on responsibility from day one with in-depth training to kick-start your learning, a line manager to guide and challenge you, and a buddy and mentor to support you as you build your knowledge and skills. You’ll learn due diligence processes to onboard customers and clients, delve into regulatory procedures and monitor trade and transaction flows.

You could be involved in improving our range of complex services and processing activities. All of which will give you a deep understanding of the essential operations behind a successful bank.

How you'll develop

You’ll be surprised by what you can achieve in one summer. From beginning to end, we’ll do everything in our power to make sure you get the very most from your internship.

We’ll surround you with challenging projects and opportunities to grow and learn. We’ll keep you motivated with encouragement, feedback and support as you build your leadership skills, technical know-how and business acumen. We’ll help you connect with mentors, and network with colleagues and senior leaders alike. You’ll get the chance to give back to the community through volunteer events.

And if you really impress us, this could be the beginning of an incredible career. We invite top-performing interns to join us as full-time analysts after graduation.

Who thrives here

We welcome people of any educational background, but to make the most of this opportunity, you’ll be curious and creative, agile and adaptable. You’ll be great at communicating and collaborating – motivated by pace and pressure and driven to achieve.

You’ll also be ready to develop a deep understanding of what we do, why we do it, and how your role impacts on our business outcomes. These are qualities that people at Barclays have in abundance, and we’ll help you develop and strengthen them from the day you arrive.
