As a Barclays Customer Service Advisor, you will be the first point of contact for our customers – and right now our customers need us more than ever. You will work within one of our dedicated teams providing support and guidance to each customer, giving that personal touch to ensure they are valued and respected.

We are looking for individuals who have empathy, understanding, and who are passionate about delivering excellent customer service. In return we will provide you with all the training and tools you need to be truly successful in your role as a Customer Care Colleague. We are looking for those individuals who have the potential to prosper, you don’t need banking experience just a can-do approach.

Barclays is one of the world’s largest and most respected financial institutions, with 329 years of success, quality, and innovation behind us. We offer careers that provide endless opportunity – helping millions of individuals and businesses thrive and creating financial and digital solutions that the world now takes for granted.

We are implementing a hybrid working environment, which means that many colleagues spend part of their working hours at home and part in the office, depending on the nature of the role they are in. We’re flexible on how this works and it may continue to change and evolve. Depending on your team, typically this means that colleagues spend a minimum of between 20% to 60% of their time in the office, which could be over a week, a month, or a quarter. However, some colleagues may choose to spend more time in the office over a typical period than their role type requires. We also have a flexible working process where, subject to business needs, all colleagues globally can request work patterns to reflect their personal circumstances. Please discuss the detail of the working pattern options for the role with the hiring manager.
