We see leadership as a skill that can be developed at any stage of your career. It is therefore a key part of how we identify and develop our talent at all levels.
Each journey is individual but there are plenty of opportunities for you to maximise your potential. These include the information, videos, books and courses in our Learning Academies, our mentoring schemes, and our My Career site, our dedicated internal resource for personal and professional development. At Barclays there’s no shortage of training and development opportunities to help you achieve your goals and ambitions.
My Rewards is our pay and benefits package. It’s designed to reward our employees for their drive, commitment and exceptional service. My Rewards gives them the flexibility and choice to create a benefits package that’s individual to them.
When new employees join Barclays, they are automatically enrolled in a core set of benefits and given a Benefits Allowance. Employees can then tailor their benefits to suit their needs, taking any unused Benefits Allowance as cash or using it to choose other benefits.
As part of our employees’ core benefits, Barclays will provide generous pension contributions, life assurance and income protection cover, as well as private medical care and 25 days holiday. Employees can also take advantage of a wide choice of voluntary benefits, with discounts and tax advantages on many of them.
Barclays understand how important it is to balance work with life commitments. We offer flexible working arrangements where possible, including working from home, compressed hours and job sharing.
Diverse organisations perform better: they understand their customers’ needs better, they make better decisions and they are better places to work.
Barclays is committed to equality. We strive to achieve this through a variety of initiatives – for example, campaigns to increase the number of female leaders and sponsoring Pride. We also support internal networks such as Spectrum (LGBT), Women’s Initiative Network and Reach (disabilities).
Diversity is critical to our success. We recognise that our colleagues have many roles in addition to their work at Barclays, so our flexible working options support their commitments outside their professional lives. We offer a range of employee benefits to meet individual needs.
Our dynamic working programme has been set up to help Barclays colleagues achieve an optimal work/life balance. Arrangements we offer range from working at home and changing regular hours to taking career breaks. Our Dynamic Working initiatives support colleagues at all stages of their lives, helping them with parenthood, caring, further studies and hobbies.
Key Time Working
We have invested a lot in creating an ‘agile’ workforce, recruiting Key Time workers who have the ability to work flexibly to meet the needs of our customers, whilst benefiting from working hours that fit around their lifestyle.
One available option is job sharing. This is an arrangement where typically two people are employed part-time to cover one full-time position. It’s suitable for a wide variety of people and particularly appeals to parents of young children, carers, and those who have other responsibilities in their lives where they need to carefully balance their working life and personal circumstances.
What are the benefits of job sharing?
• It offers a more flexible work-life balance
• It can help you maintain a sense of value and self-worth, enabling you to reach your potential in a role which may not usually be available on a part-time basis
• By working together with a job share colleague, you can offer the perfect mix of skills and the complementary strengths needed for the role
• And, by offering the flexibility to match different personal circumstances, we’ll always be able to attract and retain the best people
