Barclays is a global financial services provider.
Though proud of our national heritage, we’re no longer just a British bank. We have a large international presence across Europe, the USA, Africa and Asia where our 135,000 employees move, lend, invest and protect money for more than 30 million customers and clients worldwide.
We have a clear view of where growth will come from over the coming years. While there will be significant growth opportunities in the UK, we see many more internationally. 2006, for example, was a record year for Barclays with profit before tax standing at £7.136 billion; up 35 per cent on 2005. Around half of our 2006 profit came from outside the UK.
In a world that is constantly evolving, true success can only be measured, not only by seeing where we stand today, but by the journey made to get there. As a result, fresh thinking, creativity, optimism and most importantly going an extra mile is imperative for your success at Barclays.
