working at barclays

Why work here?

Wherever we are in Barclays, we are united and guided by one common purpose and shared values. 

We deploy finance responsibly to support people and businesses – acting with integrity and empathy, championing innovation and sustainability for the common good and the long term. We are at our best when our clients, customers, communities and colleagues all progress.

In support of this great purpose, everything we do is guided 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, run with bold ideas and look for career potential in any role they take. 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.

What’s more, we believe very strongly in citizenship – giving something back to the wider world through volunteering, fundraising and generally helping our communities and people all across the globe to rise.
