The heartbeat of the bank

At any given moment, Barclays is a hive of activity and opportunity. A couple gets their first mortgage, or uses a credit card to finance a family holiday. In the same breath, a business agrees the asset financing for a new fleet of vehicles, or our team raises debt financing for a university’s refurbishment – such as building new accommodation or sports facilities. It’s all happening at once, every minute of the day.

To maintain that real time activity around the world, across investment, corporate and retail banking, you need smooth-running, constantly improving systems behind the scenes. Payments need to be processed. Credit card systems need to be maintained. Trades, equity transactions, debt financing – you name it – it has to be slick, effective and swiftly processed so our customers and clients receive excellent service, every time. That essential work, encompassing absolutely everything we do, is down to the Operations team. Put simply, they’re the heartbeat of the bank.
