Military & Veterans Outreach
Barclays supports serving personnel, veterans, reservists and the wider armed forces community across the UK and US, through its Military & Veterans Outreach (MVO).
Commitment to those serving, veterans and their families
In 2022, Barclays re-signed the UK Armed Forces Covenant, boosting its commitment to the military community, ensuring those who serve, or have served, are treated fairly. The bank’s commitment to fulfilling this pledge has been recognised through the highest-level Gold Award by the Ministry of Defence’s Employer Recognition Scheme. Barclays has also received the Secretary of Defense Freedom Award in the US.
Barclays’ military programmes support members of the armed forces community to develop the skills they need to transition into civilian life, and gain employment, and are enabling veterans to grow their own businesses. The bank also offers tailored banking services for the military community and has a military leave policy, supporting serving reservists and military family members.
Military Talent Scheme
The Military Talent Scheme supports service leavers who are in their resettlement period through a 12-week work placement with Barclays, helping their transition into civilian careers.
Barclays values the transferable skills military talent brings and encourages veterans and military spouses to join through one of the many varied roles the bank has to offer. Register with Barclays’ Military Talent Pool to hear about upcoming events and opportunities.
