Help lead and shape the bank of the future

To become the bank of the future – and make a difference to the lives of our 30 million customers across the country – we need strong leaders. We need people who can enable the transformation of our business and manage how we bring our customers and colleagues with us. Given the scale of our organisation, this isn’t an easy task – so we’re looking for new talent to join us and make it happen. So, if you’re looking for a career with impact – we have a job for you. And the great news is you don’t need a business or finance degree to come and work with us.

YOUR CAREER JOURNEY STARTS HERE
Are you fascinated by people? Do you have an urge to learn and innovate? Could you inspire the next generation of banking? If the answer is yes, you could play a key part in our future. You’ll work on everything from transformational change initiatives to create a more digital-focused bank, to development projects with our product teams to improve how we interact with our customers. All this while building the skills to lead our organisation – both now and in the future.

During three eight-month placements across two years in different locations around the UK, you’ll work in a variety of areas to develop your strengths. From project management to cyber security, this programme offers a broad range of experience to help you build your career in almost any division within the Group.

Day to day you’ll be:

- Leading the re-design of our products to better serve the needs of our customers
- Inspiring your team to make a difference for themselves and their customers
- Deploying new technology that will make banking easier for customers
- Embracing new technologies and different ways of working in order to deliver excellence for our customers
- Researching insights and trends to identify new opportunities and markets
- Interacting with customers and building your knowledge of the products we offer

AND IT’S BUILT AROUND YOU
People do their best work when they feel happy and valued; that’s why you’ll receive the tools you need to develop the career you want – from mentoring to TED-style talks. We’ll support you to complete a professional qualification and you’ll also have the chance to lead on UK community volunteering initiatives.

As the largest digital bank in the UK we’re dedicated to helping Britain prosper. As part of the Group, you’ll not only represent Lloyds Bank but our other brands too, including Bank of Scotland, Scottish Widows and Halifax. Our focus is to become the bank of the future, and with over 12 million online and eight million mobile users, we’re constantly exploring how to bring new digital solutions to our customers.

BUT FIRST YOU’LL NEED
A 2:2 degree or above in any discipline from any university. The variety and experiences of our colleagues makes our workplace unique, so we encourage people from every kind of background to apply. It’s important for us, and it shows. Recently, we were named a Times Top 50 Employer For Women, as well as the Best Bank in the World for Diversity and Inclusion at the Euromoney Awards 2017 and a Times Top 100 Graduate Employer.

Locations: Our Graduate Programmes are rotational and, unless stated otherwise, our Enterprise Leadership roles are based nationwide.

Salary: From £28,000 plus a range of great benefits.

REASONABLE ADJUSTMENTS DURING RECRUITMENT PROCESS

The Group has an Inclusion & Diversity strategy and through a range of initiatives we work hard to ensure Lloyds Banking Group is inclusive for everyone.
