Position: Programme Manager, Investment Bank

Location: New York, USA

I work with the Trade Capture group for the Rates IT division as a Project Manager on the Sales and Trading Efficiency programme. This role allows me to work closely with various internal IT teams along with the Rates Traders, Sales and Operations groups to build a trading platform that improves the percentages for STP (straight-through-processing). I look forward to coming into work as every day holds new challenges.

I graduated from the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, India in 2003 with a Masters in Mathematics and Computer Applications. As a student, I held internships in Germany and Australia, where I learned about different industries and cultures, including the fast-paced nature of global finance. I realised my passion for finance, so I joined a financial services firm in India, which gave me exposure to the investment banking world and eventually helped me relocate to New York.

In 2007, I decided to join Barclays Investment Bank, having interviewed with a number of competitor firms. I chose Barclays because I was impressed by the firm’s client focus, its commitment to building a global brand and the calibre of people I met during the recruiting process.

When I joined Barclays, I was inspired by the support I received from my colleagues. They really helped me come up to speed in my new role, putting in extra effort to make sure I understood the systems and ensured I was moving in the right direction.

As the Trade Capture team has grown from ten to almost a hundred members, I do my best to assist new joiners and provide them with the same support I received. I am proud that Barclays strives to create a collaborative and inclusive work environment where colleagues of different backgrounds can openly contribute their best ideas and talent.

I work very hard and need to be flexible, but I still have the ability to pursue my interests outside work. In the summertime, I like going out for long distance bike rides. This year, I went for a 70-mile bike ride to Montauk, Long Island with some of my colleagues. I also like going away for ski weekends and exploring the mountains in the winter, and I’m glad that my work allows me to that. Most importantly, working at Barclays allows me to frequently visit home in India.
