Why the Risk Graduate programme?

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, Market Risk, 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.
