We accept individuals who are on track to achieve or have achieved a 2:2 from all universities. We also accept PhD and Masters Students. All you need to do now is decide which programme appeals most to your passions and interests. As far as selection criteria, we assess your strengths, drive and motivation for the specific programme you have applied to.
For the Graduate programme you must be on track to achieve or have achieved a 2:2, from any university.
We have no requirement for UCAS points for this programme.
We will verify this through asking for your previous transcripts to demonstrate you have to date achieved at least a 2.2 or above and are on track to achieve this on completion of your degree.
You must meet all of the entry requirements in order to qualify for the programme. It’s important that we have a consistent recruitment approach to ensure the process is as fair and effective as possible. We also offer a range of direct hire career opportunities throughout Lloyds Banking Group, which you can find on our Job Search page.
DUE TO EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES I DON’T MEET THE MINIMUM ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS. CAN I STILL APPLY?toggle
We assess each case individually, so please get in touch by emailing email@example.com.
Typically, we would expect extenuating circumstances to be validated by an official letter from your university or a medical practitioner, confirming your circumstances.
We’ll only accept one application per recruitment campaign year. However, if the programme you applied for is full, and your skills and interests match programmes within the same job family, we’ll get in touch to talk about these other opportunities.
WILL I BE CONSIDERED FOR AN ALTERNATE PROGRAMME IF THE PROGRAMME I ORIGINALLY APPLIED FOR HAS BEEN FILLED?toggle
We will consider you for similar programmes where we are still recruiting and if this is the case will be in touch to discuss.
You’ll need to provide the full details of your qualification with your application, which we’ll then verify using NARIC, a tool that assesses the conversion of international qualifications to their UK recognised equivalent. If your international qualification does not meet the minimum UK recognised equivalent required to apply for the programme, we will be unable to proceed with your application.
Please find all the information you need, here.

I’M CURRENTLY STUDYING IN THE UK WITH A TIER 4 (GENERAL) VISA. I WON’T GET MY RESULTS UNTIL AFTER THE PROGRAMME STARTS. CAN I STILL APPLY?toggle
All successful applicants must have the right to work in the UK on the day the programme starts. The first months of the programme are essential in terms of understanding your role, building a foundation of knowledge, networking and forming relationships with fellow graduates.

MY PASSPORT IS CURRENTLY WITH THE UK HOME OFFICE AS I’M IN THE PROCESS OF AN IMMIGRATION APPLICATION. IS THIS IS A PROBLEM?toggle
Please refer to the following page in relation to right to work, click here.
We prefer that all successful applicants produce their passports as part of the onboarding employment checks. If this isn’t possible we’ll ask you about any alternative documentation that will meet the Home Office requirements.
All documentation that is produced as part of the right to work process must be current, in date, and not expired, because this will be needed to complete the pre-employment vetting process before you commence your programme.
The application deadlines vary per programme. Please review the closure date for the programme you are interested in on the specific programme page, and ensure your application and online tests are completed by this date. We will be unable to consider any applications after this time.
Internal candidates who have achieved or are on track to achieve a 2:2 degree or above, will be assessed in the same way as all external candidates. When applying for one of the Graduate Programmes, please ensure you use an external email address in your application.

Yes. As this is a recorded interview, you can do it at a time and place that suits you – whether that’s early in the morning or late into the night. We recommend you pick somewhere quiet though, and it’s a good idea to turn off your mobile phone, too.
While we can’t provide individual results for online testing or video interviews, you will be sent a feedback report on the strengths and motivational alignment test. If you attend an assessment centre you’ll be provided with a feedback report too. This highlights your best strengths and aims to support your development.
The assessment centre consists of a full day of energising exercises. You will also undertake an exercise in Virtual Reality where you will enter an immersive environment and be asked to complete an exercise within this. Our assessment process reflects Lloyds Banking Group being the largest Digital Bank in the UK.
You’ll meet senior people from the business, as well as existing graduates who can give you an insight into life at Lloyds Banking Group.
Everyone has their own unique combination of strengths and areas for development, so we want to see the ‘real you.’ We’re not expecting perfect performances, so the best way to prepare is by thinking about your natural strengths – the things you enjoy doing, and are good at.

Assessment centres take place during January and February 2019. We will advise you of the scheduled dates for your programme nearer the time so that you can keep the date free.
