Unemployment is a pressing global issue. In the UK, over a million young people are unemployed. At the same time, nearly 40% of employers say a lack of skills is the main reason they are unable to fill entry level jobs.
As part of Barclays commitment to citizenship globally, we aspire to support individuals with the aptitude and attitude, but not the opportunity or social capitalto attain and sustain employment. Barclays will leverage our position as a convener of corporates, government and NGOs to help create a network that removes the socio-economic barriers to employment.
Barclays have a number of programmes, in addition to Money Skills, that can support your career.
