Recruiting Diverse Talent “Over the last two years we have seen a huge increase in interest in Barclays from BAME students. This is testament to the thoughtful and comprehensive approach they’ve taken to identifying, engaging and supporting students. (…) Critically they’ve identified two ways to help BAME students achieve their potential – better education and mentoring from the experts, their staff.”

Hason Sandhu, SEO

“I attended various events hosted by banks leading up to Spring-Week. I received multiple offers but Barclays was my first choice. My preference was purely down to their commitment throughout the application process and consistent delivery on promises of support. Nearly all other banks spoke about open door policy but Barclays is the only one who truly demonstrated this. Their people and culture really set them apart” Reeya Sakaria, LSE
