IT Summer Internships 2011 at Barclays Capital England London – 27th Jan 2011
Barclays Capital is the investment banking division of Barclays Bank PLC, offering strategic advisory, financing and risk management solutions to large corporate, government and institutional clients. With more than 23,000 people in offices around the world, we have the global reach and distribution power to meet the needs of issuers and investors in all the major financial markets.
Unsurprisingly, the firm’s IT strategy is entirely business-driven. Our Technology function is made up of a team of specialists who use their skills to support our internal infrastructure and to help us develop new products. Working in close partnership with traders and financial professionals, our team maintains and creates the powerful trading and analytical systems that are integral to our success. While we provide 24-hour a day support, our technologists work alongside many business areas and are broadly grouped into global teams spanning three time zones: Europe, Asia Pacific and the Americas.
Most of our internships last for 10-12 weeks over the summer. For technically capable people with an interest in finance, Barclays Capital is a place to make your mark. Identifying, tracking and resolving IT issues are initial duties, alongside talking with traders to implement quantitative models. Further down the line, you could find yourself improving the design and structure of databases which will increase the speed and efficiency of our firm’s day-to-day operations. Apart from technical knowledge, the technology role demands a strong sense of initiative and the ability to prioritise workloads.
