Graduate FAQs


I’m not sure which graduate scheme my degree is suitable for  

  • The academic requirements are the same for all programmes, so it's better to focus on where your passions and interests lie. As far as selection criteria are concerned, we'll assess your strengths, drive and motivation in relation to the specific programme you apply for.

What are the minimum eligibility requirements to apply?  

  • For our graduate programmes, you must have, or be on track to achieve, a 2:2 or above from any university. We don't, however, have any requirement for UCAS points.

How do I prove that I am on track to achieve a minimum of a 2:2 degree?  

  • We will verify this through asking for your previous transcripts to demonstrate you have to date achieved at least a 2.2, and are on track to achieve this on completion of your degree.

Can I apply to more than one programme?

  • We’ll only accept one application per candidate, per year. However, if the programme you apply for is full, and your skills and interests match other programmes within the same job family, we’ll get in touch to talk about these opportunities.

I require sponsorship to work within the UK. Is this something Lloyd’s Banking Group can provide?  

  • Lloyds Banking Group offers sponsorship within particular skills areas, for the Graduate programme Lloyds Banking Group is open to receiving applications for Candidates wishing to apply for Engineering or Data Science programmes. Lloyds Banking Group is not able to offer sponsorship for our other programmes.

I have an international qualification; how will my eligibility be assessed?  

  • You’ll need to provide the full details of your qualification with your application, which we’ll then verify using NARIC, a tool that assesses the conversion of international qualifications to their UK recognised equivalent.

Application process

Do I need to provide a transcript of my degree?  

  • We will need to see your original certificate or official university transcript once you have successfully completed your degree. If your transcripts are in a foreign language, they will need to be translated officially into English.

What is the Disability Confident Scheme?  

  • Lloyds Banking Group is committed to building an inclusive and diverse workforce, which reflects our customer base and allows us to benefit from the widest pool of talent. If you have a disability, long-term health or neurodiverse condition you are eligible to apply via our Disability Confident Scheme (DCS).

What happens after I have submitted my application?  

  • Once we've received your application we'll begin the assessment process.

Programme details

Where are graduate schemes based?  

  • Some of our graduate programmes are rotational, meaning you’ll be based in different UK locations, while other programmes will see you based in a specific location for the duration of the programme. Therefore you'll need to commit to the location requirements for whichever programme you apply for.

What happens at the end of the graduate scheme?  

  • Our programmes are designed to embrace your passions and develop your skills and interests so you can enjoy a successful career with Lloyds Banking Group. 

Assessment Process

How do you assess my skills, and whether I'm right for the scheme?  

  • We use a strengths-based assessment process to find the best people, with the right values, talent and drive, to join our business.

Can I retake the online tests if I fail first time?  

  • Unfortunately, to be fair and consistent to all candidates and what we are assessing you against, you'll not be able to sit the tests again.

What kind of reasonable adjustments can be made?

  • Adjustments vary greatly depending on the specific needs or circumstances of the individual and the best way to identify the most suitable adjustments is for us to speak with you, which will allow us to determine what adjustments would be most appropriate.

How can Lloyds Banking Group support candidates with a Neurodiverse condition?

  • Within the application form there is an option to disclose and select if you've a neurodiverse condition. If you select ‘yes’ to the neurodiversity question a member of our team will contact you to discuss further.

Can I have feedback on my tests or interview?  

  • While we can’t provide individual results, you will receive an Insights report after completing the Online Assessment. This will help you understand more about your strengths and areas of development.

What technology and environment do I need to attend the virtual assessment day?

  • We use Microsoft Teams to run our virtual assessment days. You'll require access to a laptop/iPad and a good internet connection for the full day and ideally somewhere to sit where you can be free from distractions.

What does the virtual assessment day involve?  

  • Everyone has their own unique combination of strengths and areas for development, so we want to see the ‘real you.’ We’re not expecting perfect performances, so the best way to prepare is by thinking about your natural strengths – the things you enjoy doing and are good at.

When do the virtual assessment days take place? 

  • We'll advise you of the scheduled dates for your programme nearer the time so that you can keep the date free.
