Hi,

I thought I'd make a dedicated thread for this year, as I don't believe there is one.

Has anyone else applied for a higher apprenticeship with Barclays?

I applied for the Relationship Management sector at Canary Wharf. I managed to get through to the video interview which I did yesterday.

The initial tests were hard, and the video interview was also quite hard. Not sure how I've but hoping I've done enough to get through to the assessment centre.

Hey! I've applied for the Leadership and Management one at Oxford. I'm preparing for my video interview at the moment, are they tips or advice you can give me? I'm a bit nervous!!

Hope you hear good news back soon!

The first section of the interview you can't prepare for, as it's verbal reasoning test, not even an "interview". They give you a paper, you have to read through it then answer questions on the paper.

The second section is the actual interview. For this, there are your standard interview questions e.g. Why Barclays then there are also some competency and situational judgement questions.

I would say prepare a lot and know the values well as it's important to relate to these in the questions they ask you.

thank you! Ive heard if youre called in for the assessment day there is a group activity and presentation. Could you elaborate on what i should expect if i get to that stage as i have really bad anxiety and ive never been good at presenting.

I can't really help you as I've never been to a Barclays assessment centre. Just look on their website, I'm sure there will be something on their to help you with the assessment day.

Hello, i'm currently on the leadership and management higher apprenticeship with Barclays in my 1st year. With the assessment centre, you will be given details of the day should you pass through the digital interview, as well as advice and tips etc from Barclays.The assessment centre was a really relaxed day, its not as stressful as it seems once you get there! The day runs smoothly and for the most part is about getting to know you.My advice would be to look on forums across the internet such as this one for advice regarding assessment centres, they helped me a lot. Just be yourself! Good luck with the application
