What to expect
You’ll take on responsibility from day one with a line manager to guide and challenge you, and a buddy and mentor to support you as you build your knowledge and skills. You’ll meet with people from across the bank — as well as our external creative agencies — and experience new aspects of the business every day. You should be prepared to work independently and in teams, gaining hands-on experience of a wide range of projects.
How you’ll develop
You’ll be surprised by what you can achieve in one summer. From beginning to end, we’ll do everything in our power to make sure you get the very most from your internship.

We’ll help you connect with mentors, and network with colleagues and senior leaders alike. You’ll get the chance to give back to the community through volunteer events. And if you really impress us, this could be the beginning of an incredible career. We invite top-performing interns to join us as full-time analysts after graduation.
Who thrives here
We welcome people of any educational background, but you should have a keen interest in marketing and business. You’ll be great at communicating and collaborating – motivated by pace and pressure and driven to achieve and search for the best solution. You’ll also be ready to develop a deep understanding of what we do, why we do it, and how your role impacts on our business outcomes. These are qualities that people at Barclays have in abundance, and we’ll help you develop and strengthen them from the day you arrive.
