Manage risk, build your career

In our business, successfully managing risk is more than strategically important – it’s essential. As an integral part of our success, Barclays’ Risk team helps determine the level of risk considered appropriate for our client, group of clients or other legal entity. Think you have what it takes to succeed here? Join us as an analyst.

Real responsibility, right away

You’ll start out with four weeks of intense training, covering various topics, including accounting, finance, stock and bond analysis, and an overview of all major instruments and businesses.Then you’ll begin the first of three, eight-month long rotations in our offices – with a potential opportunity to work in London for part of the time – exposing you to a variety of areas across Risk. During this programme, you’ll be placed in one of the key areas in Risk, including Credit, Operational, Treasury and Model. Along the way you’ll build excellent foundational knowledge while getting to know our business and our people. As a Risk analyst you may:

  • research and analyse financial statements and industry peer groups to assess creditworthiness
  • prepare and maintain industry and counterparty credit reviews and ratings
  • monitor and report on a product’s risk profile
  • on-board new clients and ensure counterparty data is complete and accurate
  • assist in handling trade requests, including analysing transaction specific risks.
  • A place where you can thrive

    At Barclays, you’ll be part of the Risk function of a trans-Atlantic bulge bracket bank, surrounded by people who will help you achieve your ambitions. Our collaborative, supportive environment gives you the chance to build solid relationships with senior leaders and peers alike. During the programme, you’ll also:

  • participate in formal and informal training
  • connect with junior and senior mentors
  • attend dedicated networking sessions and other programme events
  • receive detailed performance feedback
  • give back to the community through volunteer events.
  • This could be the beginning of an incredible career. We invite top-performing analysts to remain within Risk and will be automatically promoted to Assistant Vice President (subject to open positions being available).

    To be considered for this programme, you must:

  • be motivated with a strong degree or expected degree – in any area.
  • Ideally, you would also have:

  • Problem-solving skills
  • Analytical thinking
  • An interest to understand how a global bank adapts in a constantly evolving regulatory environment, then you’ll flourish with us 
  • An interest in how our bank responds to external market influences and find the support to build a successful career within Risk
