Starting your technology career at Barclays

Technology moves fast: today's ideas and innovations create tomorrow's banking practice. Hiring apprentices and graduates is an important way of keeping our minds open and challenging ourselves.

Graduates and apprentices are our innovators in waiting. We hire technology apprentices into permanent roles when they're 16 years old, but we also let them continue studying at college or university. Technology graduates join us when they've successfully studied a STEM subject.

Our technology graduate and apprentice programmes

Technology apprentice programme

Apprenticeships are a great way to start a career in IT: they offer an opportunity to learn while earning a competitive salary. We hire technology apprentices into real, permanent roles straight away. They complete a two-year programme, and can continue in the role afterwards.

If you're motivated, enthusiastic and dedicated, you'll enjoy this programme! To apply, you'll need a passion for IT, enthusiasm and dedication, and a minimum of grade C for English and Maths GCSE (UK) or qualifications relevant to our other locations.

This programme currently operates in Knutsford, London, New York, Northampton, Pune, Vilnius and Wilmington.

Our work can affect the daily lives of up to 37 million customers worldwide. To support our systems, we need people with outstanding skills, so we look for graduates with energy and new ideas to become our future IT professionals.
