Lloyds Banking Group – Women in banking insight week

Lloyds Banking Group are offering up to 20 successful undergraduates the opportunity to join them for an Insight Week at Lloyd their London offices, within the CB Market Division.

This is your chance to learn about the trading floor at Lloyds and to get more great experience to go on your CV.

It’s the perfect opportunity for those who want to understand more about Markets in general as well as the range of career opportunities within CB Markets, including Lloyds Banking Group’s summer Internships and Graduate Programmes.

You don’t need to be studying Maths or Economics to join – the Internship and Graduate Programmes are open to any degree background – and so is this event. ‘Diversity of thought’ is far more important to them than the subject you in which you have specialised because they can teach the relevant technical skills.

During the week you will:

  • Get an overview of CB Markets
  • Spend 5 full days on the Trading Floor
  • Shadow current Graduates who work in CB Markets
  • Practice an assessment centre exercise
  • Hear from several of their senior leaders
  • Network with Lloyds Banking Group colleagues and Graduates

Expenses will be covered up to £15 per day

Start Date: Week commencing 4th September 2017

Why a Women in Banking event?

Lloyds Banking Group is committed to supporting both male and female colleagues at all levels of the organisation. We know that diversity can make a material difference to the success of our business, from the way we make decisions, to how collaboratively we work. But we also recognise that women remain under-represented at senior levels within the financial services industry, and that often women can be put off seeking to enter what they perceive as a male-dominated industry. We believe that acting to change this situation is not only the right thing to do but a business imperative.

We’ve made great progress to date, but women still remain under-represented at our senior management grades. We’ve demonstrated our commitment to change this publicly – as part of our Helping Britain Prosper Plan – aiming to have 40% of senior roles held by women in 2020. While the roles might be senior, we know that developing our entry level talent is key, because many of our graduates go on to fulfil senior positions.

Ultimately, we want to inspire more women at university to see a great future for themselves in financial services.
