Risk Placements

We’re looking for hardworking and motivated industrial placement students to join our Risk Management and Transformation Teams in multiple locations across the country.

Our Risk Management and Technology teams are at the heart of everything we do, whether that’s identifying and resolving financial crime or working on risk models and strategies for our products. We are setting new industry standards in banking with cutting-edge technology, products and services that improve our customers’ financial lives. You’ll get the opportunity to develop your skills, discover new ones and build your career in a friendly and inclusive working environment, where you’ll quickly feel like part of the team.

Everyone comes to Lloyds Banking Group with different experiences, skills and knowledge – it’s what makes our workplace unique. Most of our opportunities are technical, but we encourage people from every kind of background to apply.

Depending on your skills and where you’d like to develop, there are three types of opportunities available where you could help us build the bank of the future.

Technical Analysts

What we’re looking for:

  • Strong numerical skills
  • An analytical mindset
  • An ability or an interest in learning and using coding skills

As a Technical Analyst, you might be analysing credit risk such as the likelihood of customers making repayments. You could be developing models to assess customer behaviour or be at the heart of our regular stress testing activities required by our regulators.

Many of the roles use SAS which is a leading business programming language used for reporting, analysing and modelling our rich customer data. Previous experience of this is advantageous, but isn’t expected.

Non-Technical Analysts

What we’re looking for:

  • Strong attention to detail
  • Great organisational skills
  • Engaging communication skills and the ability to influence others

As a Non-Technical Analyst, you could find yourself in one of a broad range of positions - perhaps analysing operational risks or helping to set risk policy. You could play an important role in one of the many huge change projects across the bank. You could even help manage the communications to the whole Risk division.

There are relatively fewer opportunities available in this category.

Software Engineering (Halifax and London locations only)

What we’re looking for:

  • An ability or an interest in learning and using coding skills
  • Strong attention to detail
  • An analytical mindset

As a Software Engineering Industrial Placement you will be supporting Engineers in delivering exceptional service to our customers. This could be with engineering teams on our Internet Banking or Mobile Banking services or you could be helping to create a learning culture across the engineering community.

Many of the roles use Java or C# programming languages. Previous experience is advantageous, but is not expected.

There are relatively fewer opportunities available in this category.

As well as offering a great place to work we’ll give you:

  • £18,500 salary (£21,950 in London)
  • 23 days holiday (plus bank holidays)
  • Structured training and development opportunities
  • Opportunities to build excellent working relationships and networks in one of the country’s largest businesses
