Paid internship

Lloyds Banking Group offers a paid internship as part of this scheme.

  • invaluable work experience
  • direct exposure to a large banking company

The internship is your chance to prove yourself if you want to join the Lloyds Banking Group Graduate Leadership Programme (GLP).

Mentoring and networking

Lloyds Banking Group will give you a personal mentor who will support you throughout your experience. Through the relationship with your mentor, you will also get:

  • advice on selecting the workstream for your internship
  • real insight into Lloyds Banking Group
  • opportunities to understand and experience different areas of the business

Gain skills through volunteering

As a Lloyds Scholar, you need to commit to 100 hours volunteering in your local community.

Volunteering is a fantastic opportunity to challenge yourself and develop skills valued by employers. This rewarding experience is a great way to get involved in what's happening in your area.
