Finance Graduate Scheme

Job description

Design strategies that help our clients and business partners to prepare for the future and grow, in a fast-changing industry.

Finance goes beyond accounting

Today’s financial markets are changing – maybe more than they have ever been. Emerging technology, new competitors and people’s changing expectations of their banks are just a few of the things that are shaping our industry.

Our role, in Finance, goes beyond accounting. We analyse those changes and advise our business and clients across the UK on their next move. We’re here to uncover patterns they haven’t yet seen, assess the financial impact, and help them shape new strategies. Given the speed at which these changes are happening, our work has a noticeable impact on the future of the bank and our purpose to help Britain prosper.

Is our Finance Graduate Scheme for you?

Are you resourceful and passionate about building great relationships? If you are, you could join us in Finance.

Finance teams are the trusted advisors to our business. Our people come from diverse backgrounds but are all analytically minded, pragmatic and resilient. They try to see things in a different light; taking large amounts of complex information and uncovering the stories they tell. And, once they understand how a business works, they can develop strategies that help transform it, within a fast-changing industry.

Whatever your degree, if you love finding solutions and are excited to learn from colleagues across all levels of our business, we’ll help you to grow as a Finance specialist.

What you'll learn on the Finance Graduate Scheme

This three-year graduate scheme offers you Finance placements in Bristol and London, where you’ll discover what it means to be a key partner in decision-making.

Your placements will be in

Core Finance (Bristol)
Understand and contribute to the core purpose of Finance within Lloyds Banking Group

Customer (London)
Learn about Lloyds Banking Group’s customers and the products and services we provide

Insight and Analysis (London)
Develop your ability to provide fresh perspectives on a topic, working independently and presenting information to stakeholders

Busines Partnering (London)
Become a Finance Specialist and lead relationships with both the business and finance community

While you complete these, we’ll support you to study for a professional accounting qualification – either through CIMA or ACA. And, given that Finance supports all of our business areas, you’ll have opportunities to grow a diverse network of colleagues and contacts across Lloyds Banking Group, too.

By the end of the scheme, you’ll have greater awareness of your abilities and interests, and a genuine understanding of how your work makes an impact.

The work you could be doing

  • Analysing data to develop business cases
  • Building relationships with colleagues and customers to better understand their needs and create solutions to meet these
  • Reviewing our practices and contributing ideas on the ways we can improve them
  • Learning about regulatory frameworks and our businesses so you can start to provide high-quality financial advice and insights to internal customers
  • Creating presentations, strategic and financial updates or investor slides, that give insightful commentary
