“I applied to Barclays in my final year after seeing their graduate scheme advertised on the University’s recruitment website. I received a lot of support from Edge Hill’s Careers Service, from helping with my CV to interview technique, and I’m sure this helped me stand out.
“I started as a Unix Technician, supporting live systems that host a variety of Barclays services that are used all over the world. I built up my skills and worked in a number of different areas, and when the programme ended I went straight into a full-time job.
“My role now involves looking after the hardware and software of the Barclays infrastructure, and helping to create bespoke applications for services. It’s a vast subject area and I’m continually learning.
“Barclays has invested a lot in my training and development and my colleagues are very supportive and encouraging. It also helps that the salary is good! I feel like the luckiest person, I didn’t think I would work for such a prestigious company for my first job.”
