About the job

Business Analyst

Glasgow Campus, Glasgow

As a Barclays Business Analyst, you will work within the Future Propositions team which will deliver the proposition and supporting technologies. The role holder will be responsible for working with Product owners to understand the business objectives and to use standard Business Analysis tools to develop client and business focused solutions alongside developers and testers.

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 currently in the early stages of 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 are able to request work patterns to reflect their personal circumstances

Please discuss the detail of the working pattern options for the role with the hiring manager.
