Returnship Programme 2019

Are you ready to return to work?

Lloyds Banking Group is running a second phase of the 2019 'Returnship Programme' - dedicated to talented professionals like you who have taken a break from their career and are now ready to return to work.

This award winning programme is now in its fourth year and recognises the transition back to work can be quite daunting. Starting in October 2019 our 16 week paid internship programme is designed specifically to support you with the transition. Our aim would be to offer you a permanent position at the end of the programme.

The Group believes that workforce agility is key to enabling us to be the Best Bank for Customers and a great place to work for our colleagues. Many of our roles offer flexibility around where people work and the hours they work.

What else can you expect? 

Meaningful work from day one in a friendly, collaborative environment with an easy on-boarding programme. A  buddy who joined the programme in previous years, regular coaching, mentoring and additional support to help you settle into Lloyds Banking Group.

As you'd expect, salaries vary depending on the business area and the type of role that you're appointed into and you can find out more via the dedicated page links below.

To qualify, you'll need to be returning from a break of (minimum) two years and whilst you're likely to have worked within professional services or banking, it's your experience, passion and transferable leadership skills that are important to us. So let us help you as you embark on your next journey.

Hannah Headshot

Hannah joined our Transformation Returnship Programme. Read about her experience:

"I have had a really positive experience returning to my career at Lloyds Banking Group after having my family. Within a short time of returning, I applied, and was promoted into a Senior Engineering role. Agile working and the family friendly policies has allowed me to develop my technical expertise and also my career.

Part of my new role was to be the Lead Engineer on a programme to deliver a new cloud platform for the group. The programme had exceptionally challenging timescales with an Minimum Viable Product required within a few months of my joining the programme. Despite the need to deliver at pace and the majority of the team being located in London (I am based in Manchester), the key message has always been to ensure there is the right balance between work and home life, and that “little engineer” comes first.

This flexibility and approach to work location, travel and my flexible hours has been consistent from my line manager and all the senior leaders I work with from the different IT teams. I firmly believe it is this supportive and inclusive environment that has empowered me to do the best for my young daughter and balance home life, without compromising my ability to deliver at work.

Due to my work on Cloud I was thrilled to be nominated by the Engineering Leadership team for the Everywoman in Tech Software Engineer Award 2019, and was successful in making it to the final as one of four finalists. Taking part in the judging day and the awards event was an amazing opportunity and although I didn’t win on the night, I am humbled to have been included in such an amazing group of female technologists."
