Description

Barclays Technology Open Day 2017

Would you like your students to see how an organisation like Barclays manages its global technology operations?

Do you want to positively change the perception and inspire your students to think about the range of careers that exist in technology?

Barclays Technology Centre Radbroke is our largest technology centre in the UK. We employ over 3500 people at this site, working in a diverse range of roles that support the Bank's existing IT systems and services, or developing innovative new banking products and features for our customers.

The site is a 64 acre technology campus in the heart of Cheshire. Our culture embraces a strong and productive work ethic with capacity for colleagues to have fun and enjoy work at the same time.

For one day only on Friday, 24 November we are opening the site to show as many young people as we can accommodate, what its actually like to work in technology.

Students will be given a guided tour of the campus by Barclays colleagues (approx. 1 hour) and will be able to take part in an activity or presentation aimed at their age group (approx. 30 minutes).
