Barclays

Human Resources 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.

Our people are our greatest asset

We may work with numbers, but at our core Barclays is a people-based business. Our Human Resources (HR) teams are critical to ensuring the Group’s overall success by attracting, retaining and developing the right people. This team acts as trusted advisors, strategic partners and innovative solution finders. Sound like the place for you? Join us as an analyst.

The chance to make an impact

You’ll start out with several weeks of intense training, covering product and business knowledge as well as essential skills you’ll need for a successful start. Then you’ll begin the first of four, six-month long rotations, exposing you to a variety of HR areas. Along the way you’ll build excellent foundational knowledge while getting to know our business and our people.

During this program, you’ll have the chance to rotate across our HR business partner teams, where you’ll be supporting a specific business on both day-to-day and strategic issues, and across our Centers of Excellence, where you’ll develop expertise in a particular HR function such as Reward & Performance, Employee Relations or Learning, Leadership & Talent. Depending on your rotation assignment, you may:

  • assist in the development, planning and execution of the graduate Initial Training Programme or graduate placement process
  • investigate employee relations issues
  • compile and analyse data to determine impact of workforce changes
  • support employees and managers through our new promotion process
  • conduct exit interviews with employees and compile feedback to identify trends
  • help deliver diversity training for our managers.

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 eighteen months 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:

  • Problem solving skills
  • A passion for relationship building
