Barclays Structure

Barclays Africa

Africa is Barclays’ third largest market. Barclays offers roles in 14 different African countries, doing anything from helping customers in a branch to creating ground-breaking products and services and investing in future growth. In South Africa, Absa is a wholly owned subsidiary of Barclays Africa Group. Barclays owns 62.32% of Barclays Africa Group.

Our people are winning us awards for our banking services across Africa. We’re creating the kind of products and services that make a difference to both personal banking customers and business owners, helping people prosper in this exciting market. We launched one of the first apps for the Apple watch, and we've just launched innovation hubs that provide developers with the space and resources they need to grow. You could be part of this, using skills in anything from design and IT to law, compliance and HR to build tomorrow’s bank.

Our growth strategy is based on a unique competitive advantage – we are an African bank that is fully global, fully regional and fully local.
