@BarclaysUK launches first ever agriculture apprentice programme in banking

The six new candidates will gain a university level or professional qualification and the bank hopes the scheme will help the budding relationship managers specialising in Agriculture - based across the country.

 

With almost 3,000 participants since launching its apprenticeship programme in April 2012, Barclays offers a variety of programmes to suit a range of levels, interests and ages - including traineeships, foundation, advanced, bolder, higher & degree apprenticeships.

 

Through these programmes, Barclays will offer candidates the opportunity to achieve far-reaching skills, experience and insight. Enabling candidates to earn while they learn, Barclays higher and degree apprentices receive 100 per cent funding, along with a competitive salary and benefits.

 

Mark Suthern, National Head of Agriculture at Barclays said: “We are proud to establish our first banking apprenticeship in Agriculture - we are committed to supporting UK farmers and we have a large and talented team of managers across the country.

 

"These new additions will ensure we have fresh insights and longevity and we’re pleased to develop their own skills and qualifications.”

  • Sam Youds, based in Stoke - Riverside
