“I completed an internship with Barclays during my final year at Edge Hill so I knew the graduate programme would be a great opportunity to gain experience and learn new skills in a vibrant working environment.

“I am part of a team responsible for gathering information on all of Barclays software and hardware in the UK and abroad. Having this operational data to hand is vital for the organisation as it helps them plan for surges in demand and also ensures that assets are being used in the most efficient way.

“The job is really challenging and there is always something new to learn or a different way of looking at things. Barclays really values its graduate trainees as a source of new ideas and fresh perspectives, so I am currently involved in finding innovative ways of using technology to engage with internal customers.

“The graduate programme allows me to apply a lot of what I learned during my degree to my role, as well as giving me the opportunity to learn new software packages and see first hand the impact of technology on a big organisation.”
