Internal Audit


Identify problems and help us mitigate risks across every part of Lloyds Banking Group, in an independent, consultative role. We’re looking for innovative thinkers and team-players. People with an eye for detail who’re keen to make an impact within banking and financial services. If that sounds like you, begin your career in Internal Audit to gain broad exposure to different business areas, and specialise in a subject you’re passionate about.


The Internal Audit Graduate Leadership Programme offers challenging and fulfilling career opportunities for inquisitive, open-minded and solutions-focused people. Internal Audit is a business function that plays a vital role in keeping Lloyds Banking Group safe, secure and sustainable while supporting the Group’s vision to be the best bank for customers. As an independent but consultative division, we help the Group manage the areas of the bank exposed to the highest risks, and ensure there are robust controls in place to mitigate them. That’s quite a responsibility, given that we’re one of Britain’s largest banks and the largest provider of digital financial products, in the UK.

This programme will give you significant insights into our entire business. Our central role offers a unique perspective of how Lloyds Banking Group functions as a whole, but you’ll also discover how business areas operate across the organisation. This added exposure can be a valuable stepping stone towards senior leadership positions in the future.

And, because our intakes are small, we can ensure you have the support to develop the right specialist and leadership skills for a successful and impactful career.

Join us and over two years you’ll complete four six-month placements across multiple UK cities.

You’ll spend three placements in the internal audit teams where you’ll learn about performing audits to test control frameworks; identifying the gaps and recommending solutions to help ensure the highest risks are effectively managed. Your time will be divided between:

Functional Audit: See how the bank works for our clients in our front-line, customer-facing business teams. You’ll explore diverse areas such as Retail Banking and Products, Insurance, Commercial Banking and Digital.

Risk Specialist Audit: This is the engine room of the organisation; the back office specialist areas that allow bank operations to work as fluidly as possible. You could find yourself anywhere from IT to HR, Finance to Credit Risk, or Group Operations.

You will also complete one placement outside Internal Audit, where you’ll learn how other business areas work across our organisation.

We’ll support you as you study for a fully funded professional qualification, and each of your placements will be aligned to the qualification stage you’re at. That way, everything you learn will be relevant and readily applicable in your day-to-day role.

By the/your programme’s end, you’ll be part of a strong network of industry leaders and a close-knit community of high-achieving graduates. Most importantly, you’ll have a clear understanding of your strengths and career goals, and of how you can make an impact on a financial organisation of the future, in your own way.

Application Process


Our Graduate Leadership Programmes are rotational, and therefore you will have the opportunity to build a broad network and knowledge-base, as you move teams and locations for each placement along with other Graduates. Our Internal Audit roles are based across London, Edinburgh and Bristol.
