Who are Lloyds Banking Group?

We're on a mission to build the bank of the future, and we need your help to do it.

Continuing our extensive transformation programme, we're redefining what a bank is from the inside out. Our technology, our culture, and our mindset is changing to craft a true engineering-led organisation.

Become part of our diverse team, and you'll experience a rare opportunity to make a difference to the lives of millions through our brands like Halifax, Bank of Scotland, Lloyds, and Scottish Widows (among others).

Our flat teams will encourage and empower you to make decisions, build positive relationships, and deliver a meaningful difference to our customers, colleagues, and communities.

Our mentors will nurture your talent, and encourage you to further develop yourself and your career.

Where does the role sit within Lloyds Banking Group?

Intelligent Automation (IA) builds enterprise solutions for Lloyds Banking Group. Within that our lab, Digital and Intelligent Products provides a number of services:

  • Conversion of speech or voice to text and machine learning based comprehension.
  • Securely sending images of identity documents such as passports.
  • Customer document retrieval for GDPR.
  • Identity verification via facial recognition.

We've more than 50 people most of whom work within our four agile teams.

  • Two improve our existing offerings, or sometimes build entirely new products.
  • The third ensures the existing product set is operational, on-boards new value streams and increases reliability and supportability.
  • The fourth comprises our model building data scientists.

You'll need to be comfortable with JIRA and Confluence and be able to use them to produce team performance metrics and the record of work.

I hope you'll agree that there's a great opportunity here to turn a collection of parts into a well-functioning whole. We'd like this to be a lively environment to work in!

What is the aim of the role?

We believe that people don't fit neatly into roles, and we value everyone's individual skills, experience, and knowledge - it's what makes you awesome!

What follows is what you might find yourself doing on an average day in Intelligent Automation, but your experience will depend on the team's needs as well as your own aspirations. Our goal is to help you develop in a way that fulfils you, and create an environment where you can do what you enjoy.

  • You'll run scrum within a small engineering team that sits within the Digital and Intelligent Products.
  • You'll manage delivery commitments and dependencies across the labs teams.
  • You'll keep the teams' finances and forecasts in check.
  • You'll help the teams navigate the bank's processes and procedures.

It's ok if some of these are things you're not used to. We want people who want to learn and grow, and teach us something in the process.

What we need from you:

We like people who come from diverse backgrounds but as a minimum to be seriously considered we will be looking for experience of:

  • Having worked as a Scrum Master within a software engineering area.
  • Knowledge of the end to end software engineering lifecycle.
  • Understanding of Jira & Confluence.
  • Good understanding of Agile, Scrum and Kanban.

Lastly, it is not all about the technical! We would also like to see a genuine interest in helping others, focusing on what is blocking team members and resolving problems. In order to do this you will need to demonstrate your strong communication and influencing skills.

What support will I get and how will my career grow?

As a multi-brand, multi-channel business, we have the scale and breadth to provide you with a diverse range of training and development opportunities, helping you achieve a rewarding and fulfilling career.

Together we make it possible.
