We want you to have a positive experience throughout your application; one that will inspire you to develop as a person, and as a professional. Here’s what’s involved in our application process:


Your application form will give us all your basic details, and tell us about your studies and experiences. You’ll then do the online test, which looks at your strengths, numerical reasoning skills and also how you’d fit in with our company culture. All up, it should take you up to one-and-a-half hours to do.

You can prepare for the numerical reasoning section by doing practise tests at Just register your details, and head to the AssessMi section. And, to prepare for the cultural behaviours and strengths questions, think about the things you enjoy doing, the things you do well, and how they’ll be beneficial to the role you’re applying for.

You can also spend time getting to know more about our company by reading our Personal Responsibility Code.

Everyone who applies will get a feedback report within a couple of weeks, and those who do well will be invited to a video interview.


This interview aims to find out more about what drives you, and to see if your passions match up with our business’ goals and needs, too.

Again, this is a strengths-based assessment, so you can prepare by making some notes about what you enjoy doing, and how you think those skills will help you in your chosen programme, at Lloyds Banking Group.

As this is a recorded interview, you can do it at a time and place that suits you – whether that’s early in the morning or late into the night. We recommend you pick somewhere quiet though, and it’s a good idea to turn off your mobile phone, too.

Once you’ve submitted it, we’ll be in touch to let you know your application result.
