What does this Programme offer?

There are a number of opportunities available in Technology and Transformation, Consumer Lending and Relationships, Commercial Banking and Conduct, Compliance and Operational Risk, including opportunities for flexible working.

Quality Engineer 

If you have a quality engineering background with a knowledge of Test Lifecycle, Test Models, Best Practices, Test Benchmarking and Test Tools then they want to hear from you. Experience in defining Quality Engineering work and producing Testing artefacts is great, but they would also be keen for those who have the ability to learn and develop technical skills (for example building test automation solutions).

Business Analysts

They are looking for experienced Business Analysts who have a solid understanding of business analysis methodologies and techniques. Can you develop, define and document “As Is” & “To Be” process models? Are you confident at gathering requirements through different methods? Then LBG would love to hear from you!

Service Engineers

Their Service Engineers are on-hand to fix problems (preferably before their customers notice them!). LBG is looking for people with strong collaboration skills who are passionate about ensuring swift and controlled IT recovery. Being able to provide clear and understandable updates is key as well as driving root cause analysis on service related issues.

Who are they looking for?

Experienced professionals who are looking to return to work from a career break of at least 18 months. LBG would like you to be curious, keen to learn new skills and share a passion for helping Britain prosper. Banking or financial services experience is always welcome, but for many roles your transferrable skills will be equally as valuable.

Why should you apply?

Through the LBG Returners Programme you will have a permanent job role from Day One, you will start alongside others on the programme and have access to a returners network, you will be supported in finding the right mentors and coaches and you will have designated learning time available to help you settle back into the workplace.
