Application Guidance

When it comes to application processes – each can be different in terms of what an employer is looking for, what steps you need to follow and what assessments you need to do.  Always do your research into the process for each company before you start – don’t expect to use the same application for each one! 

At Lloyds Banking Group, we recruit based on strengths.  This means we are seeking to understand what you’re good at and what you like to do, plus what you could do in the future.

Our 3-step process consists of:

  1. Application form and online tests – Strengths & Cultural assessment, numerical reasoning test and critical reasoning test. 
  2. Video Interviews – strengths based video interview that you can do at a time that suits you.
  3. Assessment centre – this day consists of individual and group exercises, a 121 interview and a Virtual Reality exercise – yes VR!  The assessment centre is for Graduate candidates only.

See our application page for practice tests, information and helpful guidance on the assessments.  

Let us know if you need extra support

We recognise that everyone is different and may need adjustments at different stages of the process.  If you wish to discuss any additional requirements you may need through the assessment process before starting the application please contact us by emailing
