Once you have decided which track of the Future Leaders Development Programme is right for you, you’ll need to apply directly to the programme you’re interested in. In all cases, the process begins with an online form asking you about your degree, work experience, and any extra-curricular activities you’ve been involved in. You’ll select options from a series of drop-down menus, but there are several points when you can tell us any other important details.
2. Online testing
The next step is to complete a series of online tests designed to test your numerical and verbal reasoning skills.
3. Telephone interviews
If you are successful in the tests, we will invite you to undertake a telephone interview so we can explore the opportunities you have had to display the leadership behaviours that we look for. At this stage, we’ll also require you to upload a one-page CV, so take time to be absolutely sure it showcases the experience and capabilities that will make you a success here. (We ask you to keep it down to one page to show us how concise, focused and adaptable you are.)
4. FLDP Simulation Day
In the final stage we promise to challenge and inspire you like never before, with a packed day of exercises, insights and learning. Of course, it’s all designed to help us assess your leadership potential, your intellectual ability and the core leadership behaviours. But it’s also designed to help you gain greater insight into working at Barclays – you’ll be immersed in a simulation that gives a real sense of our culture and what’s important to us. Be assured, we’ll judge you on your aptitude for the job and nothing else. But whether you succeed or not, we hope you come away feeling truly inspired and having learnt more about yourself and Barclays. The application deadline for all of our programmes is 12 noon GMT on 31st December. However, we hire on a first-come, first-served basis, and vacancies will close once places are filled so do make sure you get your application in early.
