Barrenjoey is a proudly Australian financial services firm. We’re locally managed with global reach through our strategic partnership with Barclays and uniquely majority staff owned.
After decades in the financial services industry, our early founding partners saw an opportunity to create a unique and different kind of business. They began with a blank page and a simple vision: to produce outstanding outcomes for clients with a platform that attracts, liberates and challenges the very best people.
Barrenjoey officially launched on 21 September 2020 with capital and funding support from our foundation investors, Magellan and Barclays. From our first employee in October 2019, we’ve grown to over 330 people in Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth.
Life at Barrenjoey
Our people are our greatest asset, which is why we’re looking for the best. Since launching, we’ve been on a journey to attract people that are the best at what they do. We’ve hired intelligent people with curious minds who are passionate about delivering outstanding outcomes for our clients.
While we look for people with a competitive spirit, we also look for those who put team before self. We believe diversity drives better business outcomes and we respect and celebrate different backgrounds, genders, races, religions, beliefs, sexual orientations, ages and abilities.
What you can expect from being part of the Barrenjoey team
Our workplace is energetic and collaborative where people love the opportunity to be entrepreneurial and share their ideas. And because we’re a new and growing business, we’re challenged (in a positive way!) and get to learn every day.
Beyond that, we have a workplace that:
- Values people for their ideas, drive and tenacity to succeed;
- Fosters a nimble environment where our people are comfortable with intensity;
- Doesn’t believe in antiquated hierarchical structures; and
- Offers the opportunity to grow and be rewarded based on merit.
Our early career opportunities are simple – to give curious team players the opportunity to find out if a career in Financial Services is for them.
Barrenjoey Future Principals Program is a competition designed for any penultimate year students curious about the financial services industry. Through a collaborative case study, students are challenged to research, solve problems, think critically, and demonstrate commercial acumen. Finalists will be invited to Sydney for two days to participate in the final case, meet our team, experience life at Barrenjoey and interview early for Barrenjoey’s 2022-23 Corporate Finance Internship Program.
Barrenjoey’s Summer Internship Programs are an opportunity to be part of our team from Day 1.
