Relaunch Your Career with Barclays' Encore! Return-to-Work Program
Encore!, one of Barclays’ flagship diversity and citizenship programs, helps individuals who have taken a career break prepare to re-enter the workforce. Barclays values diversity of experience and perspective among its talent and views Encore! as a way to achieve this.

Selected participants will join the program beginning 15 January 2019 to 5 April 2019.
Encore! provides returners with the opportunity to refresh their skills through leadership and development training, mentorship, networking opportunities, and a paid working role for the program’s duration. Qualified candidates with strong performance are eligible to be considered for permanent roles based on availability and mutual interest. Barclays wholeheartedly embraces flexibility with their dynamic working policy gives everyone at Barclays the opportunity to integrate professional and personal lives. The program was established in 2016, and it has expanded in size and locations across India, UK, and US offices since launch.
