Finding that the Group showed real commitment to causes like sustainability was a huge selling point for her.
Everything I read showed a company that really values its people.
Chris started with Lloyds Banking Group on an industrial placement and had a very meaningful insight into what career path he wanted to follow.
Naturally, when offered a place on the graduate scheme, he accepted straight away.

Amira joined Lloyds Banking Group as a Sustainable Financial Wellbeing Graduate with a degree in Economics and a Master’s in International Business but didn’t know what she wanted to do with it.
Since joining us, she’s been able to explore lots of different career opportunities including as Operations & Programme Support Manager, Protection Data & MI Analyst, and Private Banking Assistant Manager, until finding her permanent role as Data Insight Manager (CI&SO).
I am very confident about my future with LBG.
Lloyds Banking Group was a brand Faith knew well, so it was high on her list of companies to work for after completing her A-levels.
Now in her role as a Business Analyst Apprentice – which involves meeting lots of people, leading sessions, and looking at data – Faith is already loving her responsibilities.
At the moment the opportunities are endless!
Marlon loved the culture he experienced during his internship, so once he’d completed his Sports Science degree, he was eager to come back.
He’s now part of our Graduate scheme, working in the retail sector.
I felt empowered to have an idea and run with it.

Fatimah had a great time with LBG during an internship in her second year of university, so when it came to graduate schemes. Guess where she looked?

I’ve managed to get the best of both worlds.
Having discovered the graduate schemes via Instagram and LinkedIn, Saif immersed himself in his role in the Commercial Banking Graduate Scheme and is now an Associate in Leveraged Finance Origination.

The world is my oyster.
Meet Rose Mary
Rose Mary changed careers before becoming a graduate again, so it was important for her to find the right kind of workplace, somewhere where wellbeing is at the forefront.
As part of the Technology Engineering Graduate Scheme, not only has she found a happy work-life balance, but she also hopes to work up from her graduate role to become a manager and mentor.
You can learn a lot by the work you do. You grow as a person.
Marcus liked the values that Lloyds Banking Group represented. Joining a summer internship solidified this, as did the support and care colleagues were giving each other.
He was looking at employers that are investing in or have a purpose to become innovation leaders. And that’s what he found on his journey as a graduate.
The area I’m in right now? It’s like a second family.
Max was originally looking for roles in Cyber Security but saw that LBG had an exciting opportunity in the form of the Engineering scheme where he is now.

It’s not what I expected from a bank at all.
Billy had an active interest in banking, accounting, and law. At first he wasn’t quite sure which direction to take his career.

The Group is progressing quickly and I’m excited to be a part of it.

Everyone is very supportive and will always make time for you.
Tasmia wanted to work with LBG due to its reputation for having a great culture.
