Lloyds Banking Group supports 1.25 million businesses and more than 25 million customers in communities across the UK through iconic brands such as Lloyds Bank, Halifax, Bank of Scotland and Scottish Widows.
Innovation is at the heart of our journey to be the bank of the future, and as the largest provider of digital financial products in the UK, we now meet over 60 percent of customers’ banking needs digitally. As a FTSE 100 organisation with this kind of scale – and with 320 years of history – we believe we’re a great place for you to develop your career. So, whether you’re exploring graduate or internship opportunities, discover how we can help you embrace your passions, see where your strengths lie, and make an impact in your own way.
What makes Lloyds Banking Group such a special place to work?
Our purpose is to Help Britain Prosper. So, as well as looking after our customers, we work hard to make a positive impact in the community. Over the last 30 years, we’ve given £600 million to support charities through our independent charitable Foundations. In 2016 we helped 121,000 start-ups to get off the ground, and we helped more than 75,000 first-time buyers onto the property ladder. And in 2017 we announced a new partnership with Mental Health UK – through this, we’re creating a pioneering Mental Health and Money Advice Service for people experiencing difficulties in their mental health and finances. As part of our team, you’ll get involved in volunteering and Group-wide challenges that make a real difference to the lives of others.

What benefits or reward programmes do you provide for employees (eg Maternity, Bonus schemes)?
At Lloyds Banking Group we are committed to making a significant investment in our colleagues. As well as the wide range of development opportunities that are available, we are committed to providing a compelling reward package which, in addition to salary and performance based variable reward, offers flexibility and choice. Reward is directly linked to performance, considering both ‘what’ is delivered and ‘how’ it is achieved.
We are proud of our benefits package, which allows you to choose the benefits that suit you and your individual needs. As a major employer, we are able to access goods and services at highly competitive rates and, in some cases, offer tax and national insurance savings that further enhance the value of what you receive.
Do you provide training for your staff?
The sheer scale of our business means there are so many opportunities for you to explore new areas, discover new strengths, and develop yourself and your career. We’ll give you all the tools, support and inspiration you need to make the most of them. We offer everything from TED-style talks to innovation labs, from leadership training to digital development. This is one of the reasons we’ve been recognised by The Times as a Top 100 Graduate Employer (2016) and as a Top 100 Undergraduate Employer by Rate My Placement (2016-2017).
What is your approach to flexible working?
We encourage agile working practices, when and where it’s possible, so you’ll receive the technology that will give you that freedom.
