Is our Technology Engineering Industrial Placement for you?
Passionate about tech? Love playing with code? Relish the challenge of making digital tools even better? Engineering at Lloyds Banking Group could be for you.
Our programme gives you the chance to explore the many varied and exciting disciplines within Engineering and make a real, positive impact to millions of customers, businesses and communities. Our learning pathways can take you into Software, DevOps, Infrastructure, Quality, Security Engineering and more. As you explore, you’ll develop detailed knowledge of leading technologies like Docker, Kubernetes, Azure and Google Cloud.
Our Engineers collaborate widely with other technology teams on the design, development, strategy, implementation and testing of quality software solutions. So, if you like the idea of working and learning from others on a range of pioneering projects, this scheme could be for you.
What you’ll learn on the Technology Engineering Industrial Placement
From the moment you start, you’ll be working alongside our experienced Engineers to deliver exceptional services to customers. You could be working on large-scale projects, writing code in different languages, creating DevOps pipelines, building new features for our mobile app or creating a robot that automatically restores our core banking services.
Whatever the challenge, you’ll learn how to use agile methodologies to tackle it and see first-hand the difference your contribution can make when you’re part of a collaborative team.
Supported by your Engineering Lead, you can take up extra learning and accreditations such as cloud training and certification courses. You’ll also have access to our market-leading on demand learning platform, as well as the chance to network with other engineers at our hackathons, which are sponsored by partners such as Google, Microsoft and IBM. And if you do well during your industrial placement, you could even score a fast-track assessment for our Technology Engineering Graduate Scheme.
What you could be doing
- Helping to automate processes that save colleagues and customers time
- Testing new software to make sure it provides a seamless customer experience
- Stress-testing customer journeys and finding ways to improve them
- Helping to build customer service infrastructure that’ll be used in branches
