Lloyds Banking Group Launches Digital Talent Scheme

Lloyds Banking Group Launches Digital Talent Scheme

Lloyds Banking Group has launched a graduate programme to help develop digital banking skills.

29 graduates will embark on the two year scheme and it will be broken into three eight-month assignments in the bank’s digital division.

In the past the bank has provided graduates with digital experience in other schemes, the latest scheme will however formalise a digital programme to focus on areas such as digital proposition development, ecommerce and fraud and security.

Group director for digital at Lloyds, Miguel-Angel Rodriguez-Sola, said: “We’re delighted to launch a digital graduate scheme, which not only complements the bank’s other graduate schemes, but also highlights the commitment we have made to investing in digital and our people. It will allow us to attract the highest standard.

“With more than 11 million Lloyds Bank, Halifax and Bank of Scotland digital customers, our digital graduates will be able to contribute to the significant ways in which we improve customer experience, helping them to bank in a secure, convenient and personalised way.

“At every stage our graduates will be supported by specialist training through our digital academy and will have digital mentors who will support their personal and professional development.”

Back in October last year the bank said it would cut 9,000 jobs and close around 150 branches to focus on its digital strategy; which is part of a £1bn investment in digital technologies.
