If so, Barclays wants you!

The UK-based investment bank, which employs around 20,000 people and is making another 1,400 of them redundant, has reportedly imposed a hiring freeze. Bloomberg reports that Barclays CEO Jes Staley is extending an existing hiring freeze which started in September.

The freeze was due to be reviewed in January but is reportedly being extended for, 'a very long time.' Barclays is trying to make 7,000 people redundant and has cut a net total of 3,000 people since 2012. However, Staley says attempts to cut further have been stymied by Barclays' tendency to hire 10,000 people a year.

Henceforth, only business critical and low cost jobs will be filled.

Accordingly, Barclays is currently advertising no jobs in its markets division and only two jobs in its investment banking division. One of those jobs is for a low level 'reconciliation services professional', the other is for a New York-based VP in real estate investment banking, the job description for which is listed above. Do you match the criteria? If so, you have the dubious honor of being the only person Barclays is interested in hiring in the entire world now.
