Barclays Armed Forces Transition, Employment and Resettlement Programme

Parsys 1

Barclays’ Armed Forces Transition, Employment & Resettlement (AFTER) Programme

Every year, through the AFTER programme, Barclays supports thousands of Servicemen and women with their transition into civilian employment after serving in the Armed Forces, and aims to highlight the economic value these highly skilled individuals can bring to the corporate world.

Established in 2010, Barclays AFTER helps to address the issues faced by ex, as well as current Service personnel – regardless of rank, Service or circumstance – in their transition, by providing work placements, direct employment opportunities, CV and interview coaching, and money management sessions, as well as millions in funding for education and vocational courses for Service Leavers through Service charity partnerships.

In addition to employability support, through AFTER, Barclays offers a number of bespoke banking services which help to make banking easier for the wider Armed Forces and veterans’ community.

Barclays values your service

Barclays knows that ex-military and Armed Forces members have outstanding experience, skills, and values. We have an exciting range of career opportunities through which you can develop within a supportive and dynamic environment. The Barclays AFTER Programme is designed to help you to assess your options and translate your skills in order to land the right job.

Military Women Careers Event - 21st June 2018

We are proud of our ongoing gender diversity initiatives and would love to take more military women on this journey with us. We can offer diverse career paths, dynamic working arrangements (our approach to flexible working) which enable you to 'work your life' and specific programmes that support Service Leavers and Veterans. This event is open to women leaving the military and those who have already left, regardless of rank and Service. If you don't want to come along by yourself, please feel free to extend the invitation to a colleague - the event is suitable for any woman who is currently Serving or a veteran, considering their career options. Register for this event below.

Barclays Military Talent Day (MTD) - 22 October 2018

These take place two times a year in either London or Glasgow. The MTD consists of a series of presentations about Barclays, given by senior leaders, highlighting the transferable skills that Service personnel have and how they fit into financial services. The final presentation outlines live roles that are available to Service Leavers and veterans and how to go about applying. The day concludes with an informal networking event, where delegates have the opportunity to talk to members of the Barclays Military Services Network and ask any questions about the transition from the military into financial services. Service Leavers and veterans with an interest in a career in financial services are greatly encouraged to attend a MTD. The next MTDs are scheduled to take place in 20 February 2018 and you can register via CTP or directly through the AFTER team.

CV and interview workshops

These are bespoke one or two day workshops tailored to the needs of the individual.  

They are hosted at regular intervals – for more information about upcoming workshops and to register, please email the AFTER team.  

Barclays Military Internship Programme

The internship commences on 3 September 2018 and runs for 12 weeks until 23 November 2018 (there is some flexibility in the duration, recognising that each individual’s resettlement period is unique). The internship is open to any Service Leaver able to complete the placement whilst in the period of their Resettlement.  As the placements are for those still in Service, they are unpaid and all costs are to be incurred as part of the individual’s Resettlement process.

  • The internships are within the Investment Bank, Barclaycard and Internal Audit and based in London (Canary Wharf), Radbroke, Manchester & Glasgow.
  • Placements are available across a wide range of functions and include Risk Management, Change Management (Project Management, PMO), Financial Crime, Operations and Technology.
  • Depending on past experience, transferable skills and applicant’s interests, an appropriate placement will be allocated (this will be discussed and agreed during the application and interview stages).
  • We invest in the development of our colleagues to make sure we have the most dedicated and driven people in the market. This opportunity could be a stepping stone to a future career.

Sponsored by the Barclays Executive Leadership team, the internship has senior level support.

Applications to be made via CTP using RightJob reference N178938.
