With an advanced technology capability that can compete with the industry's best, this is a prime opportunity to spend your summer sparking change and redefining FinTech. You’ll experience the electric atmosphere that comes with genuine technological innovation, and stimulate your mind while building vital skills. At the same time, you’ll be building for the future: applying your talent to digital progress and setting the scene for an amazing tech career.

We transform the lives of our customers, clients and colleagues by tackling tough technological challenges. As a Summer Analyst, you’ll be at the heart of our work, learning from our best people. These people are the sharp minds behind services such as Pingit, bPay by Barclayscard and Talking ATMs. Experts who’ll share their extensive knowledge and give you an incredible insight into our work. With their help, you’ll gain hands-on experience, working on revolutionary real-life projects. Through workshops, interactive skills sessions, project work and networking opportunities, you’ll build a picture of what’s possible - and just how much you can achieve. And with tech insight presentations, immersive case studies and networking, you’ll get an understanding of our respected, global business, and exposure to our tech community including leading tech influencers.  We give you the perfect blend of technical knowhow, business acumen and professional -skills training. Best of all, it could lead to a future career that starts with a full-time graduate role. If you want to rise in The Next Reality, our internship could open the door to our fascinating FinTech industry.

So what exactly can you expect from your training as a Summer Analyst? To start with, you will have a two-day induction designed especially to introduce you to Barclays and the exciting world of FinTech. This is the perfect opportunity for you to learn, meet your peers and programme managers. You’ll be immersed in a talented team where you’ll be given real projects and full responsibility from day one. You'll also be given real support to deliver them: in addition to a junior buddy and a line manager, you’ll have your own personal mentor. All three will be picked especially for you. You will be introduced before your internship begins. These colleagues, along with our collection of hugely talented tech experts, will help you start strong and build from the off. Once you’re here, it all begins with a two-day induction. Then, it’s on to insight sessions and those all-important objectives – one of which will be to network and meet some of our most senior people. 

We are confident that the Summer Analyst role will give you insight into whether you would like to be considered to continue your career with us. If you've performed well and we have roles in your area, you could be on track for a Graduate offer once your degree is finished.

With our innovative application process you won’t need to send us a CV and covering letter. Instead, we’ll assess your skills and potential through a series of online assessments and face-to-to-face interviews. We think it’s the best way to see an applicant’s full potential and also increase diversity. It’s also the most immersive way to show candidates what we do - which means realistic expectations for you.

We’ve tailored our application specifically so that getting started doesn’t mean an unreasonable time commitment for you. Tasks will take slightly longer as you get closer to final assessment, so that we can get to know you better, but we won’t ask you to complete hours of applications for no reward.

What’s more, we’ll give you constructive feedback, making our process educational for everyone.  We’ve also made sure that each stage of the journey is a real chance to get to know our business and what you’ll do. We won’t demand a lot from you whilst telling you little about ourselves. This process is all about respect, and that goes both ways.
