Women in Banking Insight Week: Financial Institutions & Global Corporates Client Coverage At Lloyds

Where: England - South East England

Deadline: November 12, 2017

Type: Internship

View more

About the Event:

We are delighted to be able to offer 12 successful undergraduates the opportunity to join us for a Women in Banking Insight Week at Lloyds Banking Group's offices, 10 Gresham Street, London, EC2V 7AE, within our Financial Institutions and Global Corporates client coverage business units.

Why a Women in Banking event?

Being able to attract, develop, fully utilise and retain top female talent is highly important to us, and we recognise that companies with gender diverse senior management teams perform better. For this reason, Lloyds Banking Group has made a commitment to be a leader in gender diversity. In 2014 we made a bold public commitment on gender equality in our Helping Britain Prosper plan – to increase the proportion of senior management roles held by women to 40% by 2020. At the end of 2015, 31% of our senior management roles were filled by women. In 2016, we were among the first signatories to the Women in Finance Charter, which reinforces our Helping Britain Prosper Plan commitment of 40% women in senior management roles.

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

What is Client Coverage?

Lloyds Banking Group’s division Commercial Banking has four client relationship coverage business units across Financial Institutions, Global Corporates, Mid Markets and SME.

The Financial Institutions team is a specialist group focused on supporting the specific needs and services required by financial institution clients through a dedicated team of relationship managers in London, Edinburgh, New York and Singapore. Each relationship team’s in-depth knowledge and understanding of their sector is supported by the product expertise from the Global Transaction Banking, Capital Markets and Financial Markets, and Lending teams. The Financial Institutions business consists of a number of specialist sector teams: Banks; Insurance & Specialist Finance; Financial Sponsors; Investors & Intermediaries; Group, Government & Regulatory Solutions; Pensions, Wealth and Stockbrokers, and the Chief Operating Office.

Global Corporates is a coverage business operating across Europe, North America and Asia, managing relationships with major corporate clients with a turnover greater than £500m. The Global Corporates business is divided into a number of specialist sector teams; Consumer Services & Entrepreneurs; Food, Beverage & Tobacco; Commercial Real Estate; Industrials; TMT (Technology, Media & Telecommunications), and Infrastructure, Resources & Energy.

During the week you will:

Get an insight into Lloyds Banking Group and how the client coverage teams support the Group’s largest relationships in Financial Institutions and Global Corporates

  • Learn about key product areas including Capital Markets, Financial Markets and Global Transaction Banking
  • Understand the fundamentals of credit risk
  • Network with women at different levels of seniority across Lloyds Banking Group
  • Shadow our current graduates who work in Financial Institutions and Global Corporates
  • Work on a project to be presented to the management teams within Financial Institutions and Global Corporates

The Insight Week is an opportunity to learn more about banking as a career opportunity and understand the range of career opportunities available including summer internships and graduate programmes. The Insight Week will give you access to a number of product areas within Lloyds Banking Group including Financial Markets, Capital Markets and Global Transaction Banking as our coverage teams work closely with product areas as well as delivery to support the needs of their clients.

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