Barclays to expand Dubai staff – New Banking Jobs

Barclays, the British banking group, is looking to hire bankers to help to boost its Dubai-based corporate banking division and increase its presence across the Arabian Gulf, suggests a report in the National.

With investment banking increasingly falling out of fashion, the United Kingdom’s second-biggest lender is adding new staff in Dubai to tap into increasing trade flows, said Rezwan Mirza, the head of Barclays’ corporate banking division in the GCC.

Barclays, which recently announced a tie-up of its African assets with its Absa subsidiary allowing it to expand further in the continent, expects trade between the Middle East and Africa will likely be a strong focus of local expansion plans.

If you are looking for a job in banking, now is a good time to contact Barclays in Dubai.
