When you apply for a Lloyds Banking Group Apprenticeship, the most important thing to do is be yourself. Tell us about who you are, your school or college work, and about what you enjoy doing in your spare time. We want to find out what drives you as a person.

There are several stages to our application process. Each one is about getting to know you better, but each one also gives you a closer insight into our world. Through it all, we’ll ask you to demonstrate the skills we expect from all our people. What’s more, we want to see that you’ve got the drive and determination to work towards your goals, and that you share some of ours too.

The application process sometimes varies, depending on which apprenticeship you’ve applied for, but they usually include some, or all, of these stages:


Complete the online application form where we’ll ask you for your basic information and current academic record. If your application meets our criteria, we’ll ask you to complete a questionnaire.


After your application is accepted, this questionnaire is designed to find out more about your interests and values. We want to know if you’d be a good fit for our company, so here you’ll be asked about various scenarios to get an idea of how you approach tasks, and situations. It should take around 20 minutes to complete, and if we like your responses, we’ll send you an online test.


Online tests are a great way to get some insight into your skills, strengths and talents. These tests are designed to assess some important basic skills, and to find out how you approach work. Do well on these, and we ask you to join us on a telephone interview.


We’ll contact you to organise a time that suits you, and then carry out a 15-20-minute telephone interview. Higher apprentices will be asked to take part in a video interview. If we’re impressed by your answers, and which apprenticeship you’ve applied for, we’ll invite you to our assessment centre.

Some apprenticeships don’t require an assessment centre interview. If that’s the case for you, we’ll be in touch within a few weeks to let you know the result of your interview.


We’ll let you know during the application process if assessment centre days are part of the application process for the apprenticeship you’re applying to. The day will include an interview and a role-play exercise. We’ll let you know the outcome of your application, within a few weeks of completing the assessment centre day.
