business leaders with the talent and ambition to take a career in banking to
the highest possible level.

and Investment Banking, Accounting Training, Finance, Operations, Retail and

have opportunities across Africa. Wherever you join us, and in whatever role,
you’ll be working alongside the best in the business – go-getting achievers
with sky-high aspirations just like yours. You’ll be challenged. You’ll be
inspired and bring new ideas to those around you. And you’ll define where your
ambitions lie within our dynamic, global organisation.

The ideal candidates for the Barclays Rising
Eagles Programme should hold a postgraduate qualification (minimum NQF Level 8)
in computer science, maths, statistics, finance, engineering, business science,
informatics, law or risk management.
The applicants should also preferably have less
than 24 months’ permanent work experience (excluding temporary work during your
full-time studies).
Every bit as important as academic achievements
and practical experience, however, will be the personal qualities you bring.
You must be eager to learn, happy to share your
opinions, and focused clearly on what you want to achieve.
Above all, you must be ready to carve your own
career path while shaping our organisation for the future.
