Internships at Barclays

Our internships are the perfect introduction to the world of financial services. You’ll be immersed in your chosen business area, learning from our people and taking on real business challenges.

Wherever you join us, you’ll discover a platform to help you absorb the essential skills and knowledge you’ll need to progress on your journey at Barclays. You’ll receive genuine support and encouragement, with both senior and junior mentors to guide you; and you’ll have the opportunity to take part in networking and social events. We want you to feel part of our community from the very start.

In Investment Banking, we help some of the world’s biggest, most innovative organisations, to achieve their short and long-term goals. The challenges in this part of our business come in all shapes and sizes. They range from acquisitions, financings, divestitures, and restructurings to leveraged buyouts, exclusive sales and takeover defence. No matter which group you join, you’ll have the flexibility to find your passion and develop in a host of different directions.

What to expect

Capital Markets is organised into several specialist areas covering equity and debt origination, loans, structuring, risk management and syndication. The opportunities and challenges in this part of our business come thick and fast – and in all shapes and sizes. No matter which area you intern in, you’ll learn from the best in the business, immerse yourself in our culture, and be involved in real projects. Here are our core businness units that you might have the chance of experiencing:

Debt Capital Markets
This division collaborates with investment-grade rated companies to facilitate primary debt raising. As a graduate, you’ll partner with our seasoned experts to craft and organize fixed income securities, subsequently promoting them to potential investors. In addition to various responsibilities, this debt plays a vital role in funding acquisitions, capital outlays, and the refinancing of bonds or other fixed-maturity debt securities.

Global Finance Advisory
This group employs an analytical approach to address conventional corporate finance inquiries. As a graduate, you will delve into areas including cash allocation, capital structure management, and the mitigation of financial risks within companies.

Equity Capital Markets
This team provides guidance to corporations, institutions, and governments regarding a variety of products aimed at raising equity capital, monetizing positions, and managing ownership interests. As a graduate, you will play a role in structuring and implementing equity and equity-linked transactions.

Leveraged Finance
You’ll join a team that generates funding for companies that already have a considerable amount of debt. And because the funding is riskier, it’s also more costly, resulting in capital structures relying on a higher degree of financial leverage. As part of this team, you’ll provide clients with appropriate advice on how to manage existing capital structures in an ever-changing market environment and collaborate with Coverage and Credit Risk teams to carry out analysis that will support Barclay’s underwriting decision-making.

Risk Solutions Group
RSG assists corporate clients in handling their vulnerability to financial risks, including fluctuations in interest rates, foreign exchange rates, and inflation. Through the design and promotion of interest rate and currency derivatives, this division safeguards clients from the inherent risks associated with activities like mergers, acquisitions, debt financing, and various other transactions. As a recent graduate, you’ll be responsible for crafting precise solutions that can adapt effectively to the constantly changing landscape of risks.

This team serves as a vital link between the private and public sectors of an investment bank, handling primary market transactions involving fixed income securities. Whether it’s managing multi-billion dollar bond deals or arranging bridge loans for acquisition financing, this group provides a diverse array of financing solutions to our global issuing clients.

Corporate Broking
Corporate Broking holds a central position within Barclays’ UK advisory and capital markets enterprises. This unit plays a crucial role in propelling the growth of the investment banking platform by leveraging its well-established connections with some of the UK’s most prominent and captivating publicly listed corporations.

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 surround you with challenging projects and opportunities to grow and learn. We’ll keep you motivated with encouragement, feedback and support as you build your leadership skills, technical know-how and business acumen. 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 business and finance. 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.
