Type of opportunity:
At any given moment, Barclays is a hive of activity and opportunity. A couple gets their first mortgage, or uses a credit card to finance a family holiday. In the same breath, a business agrees the asset financing for a new fleet of vehicles, or our team raises debt financing for a county’s new university. It’s all happening at once, every minute of the day. To maintain that real time activity around the world, across both investment and retail banking, you need smooth-running, constantly improving systems behind the scenes. Payments need to be processed. Credit card systems need to be maintained. Trades, equity transactions, debt financing – you name it – it has to be checked, double-checked, and swiftly processed. That essential work, encompassing absolutely everything we do, is down to the Operations team. Put simply, they’re the heartbeat of the bank.
For the right person, the Operations team is the key to a career full of possibility, where you’ll be in touch with and highly valued by the whole bank. But who exactly are we looking for?
