Support to Veterans
Citizenship at Barclays
Barclays is focused on helping people to achieve their ambitions, and the AFTER programme is a great example of this. Through AFTER, ex-military personnel can benefit from a range of support in their transition to civilian employment. The programme provides work placements, direct employment opportunities, CV and interview coaching, and money management sessions, as well as funding for education and vocational courses for Service Leavers through charity partners.
Service Charity Support
In 2010, Barclays launched a £1M, four-year partnership with Service charity partners providing employability grants to help Wounded, Injured, Sick and Vulnerable Service personnel and veterans develop long-term careers after the military. This partnership was renewed in 2015, with a further £1M committed over four years to our charity partners, providing grants to beneficiaries across all three Services.
Barclays is a founding partner of the VETS (Veteran Employment Transition Service) project. This allows veterans to connect with mentors from business, attend ready to work initiatives and apply for veteran targeted jobs. Barclays sees VETS as key to its strategy in employing more ex-military into the bank by ensuring that candidates are well prepared and applying for the right jobs.
