“I never thought I’d be helping to manage over £150 billion in funds.”

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.

He can’t believe the amount of responsibility you get as a graduate, which is something he enjoys in his current role working in The Investment Office.

Real impact

"You can have such a profoundly positive impact on society, by working for a large organisation like Lloyds. Even the smallest of changes can help thousands of customers.”

Talking to genuine experts

“I get to speak to genuine experts in their field, both colleagues and our partners. The breadth of exposure is a big highlight for me. What makes it easier is that they’re always so accessible.”

Investigating more than exploring

“Elements of my day-to-day involves working with Excel, and Teams calls with colleagues and our partners. It’s mostly investigatory rather than exploratory work, and often project-based, such as reviewing the sustainability and effectiveness of systems within Scottish Widows Europe.”

Highlight so far

“Transforming a weekly process that used to take 3 days to complete, into a 1 day process. So that’s 104 business days saved per year.”

What about qualifications?

“I’m working towards a Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning. LBG gives generous study leave for this which is rare and worth talking about.”

Investing in the environment

“We’ve already put billions into sustainable investments, and our Responsible Investment Team led by renowned industry leader Maria Nazarova-Doyle will continue to drive this positive change within the business and sector.”

A cool place in a heatwave

“Flexible working means working from home when I need to which is great but during the most recent heatwave, I went to my local branch and worked in the cool cover of their aircon!”
