If you're thinking of applying for a role at Lloyds Banking Group, conducting your own research on the Group and the industry as a whole will strengthen your application and allow you to tell us exactly why you would be the best fit for the role. Typically you should expect to complete an online application and, if successful, be invited to interview.

Depending on the role you’re applying for you may be subject to the Senior Managers or Certification Regime (SMCR). This means that any offer of employment will be dependent on confirming you meet the regulators' standards for honesty, integrity and reputation; competency and capability; and financial soundness.

The application process

  • Application

    If you've found a vacancy that you’re interested in, hit the ‘apply’ button and follow the next steps to submit your application. You only need to provide information relevant to the role you are applying for. We do not ask for any identification or bank information until you have been offered a role.

  • Review

    We'll then review your application against the role criteria and you may be asked to complete an online skills assessment to help us further understand if the role could be a good fit for you.

  • Interview

    If successful, the next stage will be an interview. This will be done either remotely or in person, depending on the role and location (see the video below for some tips on video interviewing). You may be asked to bring along some documentation to one of our offices.

  • Job offer

    If you’re successful after interview, we'll be back in touch with a verbal offer followed by a written conditional offer. We’ll also explain what additional information we’ll need, if you accept the offer, to support our background checks.  

  • Checks

    Once you’ve accepted the offer, we’ll be in touch to ask for copies of documents, such as 'right to work' documents and proof of address before initiating the background checks. The checks will be done through our vetting supplier, First Advantage. This can take up to 16 working days to complete.

  • On-boarding

    Once background checks are completed, we’ll be in touch to confirm your start date. On day one you’ll receive all you need to get started such as your IT kit including laptop and phone, together with your ID badge.
