Connect with Work

Barclays and Catch 22 & The Prince's Trust


At Barclays, our role is to encourage economic growth and stability but access to employment and the changing definition of 'a job' challenge our collective progress. The evolution of work demands new skills, and businesses require new forms of talent to keep moving forward.

Connect with Work combines Barclays' network and scale with the workforce development expertise of the charities Catch22 and The Prince's Trust. Together, the three organisations train the UK's hardest to reach individuals in the job-specific skills that businesses are looking for and support them into employment.

Designed to bridge the employment gap, the programme has secured jobs for nearly 2,000 people across more than 100 businesses in the UK - offering real skills training with actual jobs at the end of it.
