Application Process

Register your interest

All you have to do to begin with is research which of the Spring opportunities suits your skills and ambitions, and then tell us you’re interested. That’s it. Give us your CV and a few basic details, helping us to make sure we’re doing everything we can do to encourage diversity, and we’ll get back in touch to let you know what happens next.

Business Scenario

During this stage you’ll be provided with a number of realistic scenarios giving you a real insight into what you’ll expect as part of our Spring Insight week and helping you understand our industry.

Unlike the other assessments you might have tried, our innovative platform means this isn’t just an exercise in how fast you can type. You’ll find multiple choice questions and space to record video responses too. This way we can get a fairer impression of how you work and what motivates you.

The Business scenario stage should take no longer than 35 mins to complete.


If you have been successful we will make you an offer and we’ll be in touch to discuss the next steps with you. If we can’t take you through this time our process should give you the insight and experience to help you find a role in the future.

What to expect

In just one week, we’ll improve your outlook through a wide range of experiences and insights. We'll show you the ins and outs of the many areas within Banking, Markets and Research to help you decide where you might fit in across our successful, transatlantic business with global reach.

At the end of your insight week, you’ll have a clear picture of what we do and where you might fit in at Barclays. You’ll also automatically be considered for, and maybe even offered, a place on one of our Summer Internships Programmes.

How you’ll develop

Through work shadowing, workshops, interactive skills sessions, project work and networking opportunities, you’ll gain an incredible insight into a career within Banking, Markets and Research. There will be presentations, case studies and social events with senior leaders to help you gain a deeper understanding and build your network.

Our Spring Insight week also provides you with the perfect introduction of technical and business knowledge and soft skills training to start building your career.
