Barclays

Finance Analyst - Explorer Graduate Programme - 2023

Barclays

Finance is the oxygen of the economy. Acting transparently and with expertise, we deploy finance responsibly to support people and businesses, acting with empathy and integrity, championing innovation and sustainability, for the common good and the long term. We have the capability and capital, the operational resilience and the commitment, to make a real and lasting difference to the economic lives of customers and communities. This is as true today as it was when our bank was founded over 330 years ago.

A values-driven business

We deploy finance responsibly to support people and businesses, acting with empathy and integrity, championing innovation and sustainability, for the common good and the long term.
Our Purpose is the reason our company exists; the societal need we fulfil. It encapsulates what we are fundamentally here to do. It provides a clear expression of the kind of business we want to be, and what we care about, which in turn helps guide us in the decisions we make.

Working at Barclays

In support of this great purpose, everything we do is underpinned and driven by our strong values of Respect, Integrity, Service, Excellence and Stewardship. These are fundamental to who we are, wherever we are, and in whatever role we have at Barclays – and they really matter to us.

Our values guide us, but we also believe opportunities are created by those who like to challenge convention, explore new possibilities and run with bold ideas. People who think differently, who bring all kinds of backgrounds, skills, experiences and perspectives with them.

We believe that a diverse, inclusive and engaged culture is vital; that everyone’s value should be recognised and celebrated; and that every colleague has the same opportunity to fulfil their career potential. We focus on five global diversity agendas: Disability, Gender, LGBT, Multicultural and Multigenerational. And we support our colleagues in their life and work through our wellbeing initiatives, dynamic working and networking groups.

Real responsibility, right away

It will start with several weeks of intensive training, after which, you’ll join one of our Finance or Tax teams. The first five months with your team will be dedicated to learning the ins and outs of your role through on-the-job and classroom training, so at the six month mark you can take on greater responsibility for tasks such as:

  • perform daily profit and loss analysis for business units, identifying and researching performance impacts
  • compile regular reports and scorecards for senior managers
  • analyse data for trends and insights
  • write and deliver presentations based on your analysis to senior managers
  • lead calls and meetings with fiscal stakeholders.

A place where you can thrive

At Barclays, you’ll be surrounded by people who will help you achieve your ambitions. Our collaborative, supportive environment gives you the chance to build solid relationships with senior leaders, peers and clients alike. What’s more, dedicated programme managers will support and advocate for you throughout the first two years of your career at Barclays.

During the analyst programme, you’ll also:

  • participate in formal and informal training designed to give you the knowledge you need when you need it
  • receive detailed performance coaching and feedback
  • have opportunities to expand your network and develop leadership skills.

As your official programme comes to a close, you’ll have a number of career options open to you, including placement into an exciting role right here at Barclays.

To be considered for this programme, you must:

  • be motivated with a strong degree or expected degree – in any area.

Ideally, you would also have:

  • a degree in any discipline – so long as you are motivated, analytical, hard-working and great with detail.
