Lloyds application tests

Lloyds Banking Group is one of the biggest financial institutions in the UK, and one of the oldest (its Royal Bank of Scotland brand dates back to 1695). Roles offered can be customer-focused in branch or contact centres, behind the scenes in technology and transformation, or more specialist roles in audit, risk, corporate affairs or marketing.

Prepare yourself for leading employers

Lloyds Job Insight Assessment

If you are successful in the aptitude tests, there follows a second round of online assessment that offers an insight into the roles that you will be applying for.

Lasting 60 to 90 minutes, the Job Insight Assessment allows you to better understand the activities and types of projects that you can expect to be involved in on the graduate scheme. During the test, you will be assessed on your approach to problems and the way you complete the tasks.

Virtual assessment day

The virtual assessment day is completed virtually via Microsoft Teams. On the day, there will be numerous candidates and assessors involved, and several stages.

The order varies, but these are the usual stages that you’ll typically need to complete during the virtual assessment day:

Lloyds case study and presentation

You will receive a pack of information about a case study, and be asked to scrutinise it and present it back to the group. This assesses not only your analysis skills but also your ability to create a presentation (and present it well) without much time to prepare.

Lloyds group exercise

In the group exercise, your team will be presented with some information and will need to analyse that to answer a question together. The process of coming up with the answer is almost more important than the answer itself, and you will be assessed on how well you work as part of a team.

Lloyds one-on-one interviews

Lloyds Banking Group tends to use competency-based interview questions, so during the one-to-one interview be prepared to offer specific examples in your answers. The interviewers are looking for enthusiasm and passion more than achievements, and that you align with the company values.

This is the best place for you to ask insightful questions about the graduate scheme, the job role, and the wider business.

    I enjoyed it. It required me to work on my feet whilst also being cautious when reading the questions.

    First try

    Enjoyed it thoroughly, but took some time to get into the rhythm of the test. After the first couple of questions I began to get the hang of it. Time management through this test needs to be considered more to be more successful in future.

    Good practice

    This will be my first time doing an online assessment. I underestimated the difficulty of it and thankfully I had a chance to practice before attempting the real assessment.

    Need to go back to school

    If this is an entry level exam I need to go back to school. This is challenging and having worked at a bank for 10 years most of these questions are not relevant nor would I use the skills needed on a day to day basis.
