Join an organization that's right for you
When you join an organization you need to know that it’s right for you. You need to feel welcomed. Supported. And to know that the business cares for people and looks beyond its balance sheet.
At Barclays, we feel part of a wider world and encourage our team to share our perspective. We like to contribute, giving time and raising funds for all kinds of causes and charities that benefit Barclays and society. Citizenship is a huge focus and a fundamental part of training. And we’re just as dedicated to promoting our team’s happiness, success and wellbeing. Behind all this is an entrepreneurial spirit, a relentless quest for better and a commitment to putting people first. We give employees the power to reach their potential, to make a positive impact through tech and to rise in The Next Reality.
“From day one, everyone was really receptive and willing to help.” Steve
Our work in this area covers a host of exciting initiatives. The Be Well Program encourages colleagues to support each other, understand health risks and make positive choices. Meanwhile, we empower our people to balance work and home life through flexible, dynamic working. We’ve got the technology to work remotely – so why not use it? Of course, your enjoyment of working life depends on so much more than that. It’s vital that you feel respected and have equal opportunities in every sphere of the business. Diversity and Inclusion is therefore a priority throughout our global operations. You’ll find that women make up half of Barclays’ global workforce and that men actively tackle discrimination against women through the HeForShe campaign. There are also Employee Network Groups linked to everything from gender, sexuality and multiculturalism, to families, parenting and military service. And of course, there’s nothing to stop you setting up your own. With your peer group there to provide informal support too, there’s every opportunity to achieve – and make friends in the process. In short, if you want to develop, feel challenged and really drive your career, we’ll support you from day one – whatever you need, just ask.
