Barclays set to hire in Singapore

BRITISH banking giant Barclays is sticking to its aggressive plan to hire up to 1,500 highly skilled staff by early 2011 in Singapore - despite the turmoil that has ravaged many financial institutions.

The bank wants project managers, applications development managers, and software and IT specialists for its Business Technology Centre at Changi Business Park Central launched last year.

Barclays has already hired 250 staff - mainly locals - and wants to increase this headcount to 650 by the end of this year.

The centre will allow Barclays to run its international cards and banking platforms out of Singapore.
The new staff are in addition to the 2,500 that Barclays already has for its investment banking and wealth management businesses in Singapore.

hi joe,

i'm an it project manager in another MNC bank in singapore. but i am interested in joining barclays. i've tried sending my CV directly to their HR but to no avail. i heard that i need to know somebody from the inside to get my cv noticed. can you advise if i could send u my CV or somebody else to review and find a potential job match w my profile? at a time where most banks are letting go of their people, it's re-assuring to find a bank like barclays who'd go against the trend and show more stability than the others. just let me know. thanks!

Hope my friend in the UK doesn't see this, he was Credit Crunched at Barclays UK.

It's a case of swings and roundabouts.
