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.

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.
About the role
Investment Banking at Barclays operates in two major business units:
Banking Analyst: Coverage and Mergers and Acquisitions specialises in mergers and acquisitions, capital raising, structured solutions and risk management.
Capital Markets: Specialises in equity and debt origination, loans, structuring, risk management and syndication.
Whichever business unit you join, we can offer you the broad exposure to different types of clients, transactions and products you need to become a highly-skilled banking professional.
What to expect
You’ll not only receive a unique insight into what we do by working closely with colleagues from across the Bank, but you will also take on your own projects and responsibilities — with our full support. You’ll start with training, after which you’ll join a team focused on a key industry, product or region. You’ll work on live deals and deal proposals, learn how to put together new business presentations and discover the art of executing transactions.
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.
