We’re the UK’s largest financial services group, with millions of customers and a history stretching back more than 300 years. Our purpose is to help Britain prosper as the nation recovers from the pandemic.
As we look to build the bank of the future, our digital transformation is playing a key role in helping us deliver new products and services to individuals and businesses. While our adoption of new technology and changes to the way we work have helped make us the largest digital bank in the UK, with over 17 million online customers.
The scale of our business—which includes iconic brands such as Lloyds Bank, Bank of Scotland, Halifax and Scottish Widows—means we can offer colleagues a wide range of opportunities to grow, learn and develop.
Our people also benefit from being part of a supportive environment, one which is inclusive and driven by our values. We pride ourselves on having an open culture where diversity is celebrated. We’ve still more to do to ensure our organisation reflects the people and communities we serve, but our commitment to diversity and inclusion has already been recognised in numerous ways:
We’ve made The Times Top 50 Employers for Women list for 10 years in a row.
In 2020, we were named the Outstanding Employer at the Ethnicity Awards for a second time.
2020 also saw us named a Top 10 Employer for Working Families for the sixth year running.
We’ve also achieved the Business Disability Forum’s Gold Standard Benchmark as a leading employer of people with disabilities.
We’ve been recognised in the OUTstanding Top 100 LGBT+ Allies leaders business lists.
Flexible working is at the heart of our strategy. We’re re-imagining where, when and how our people work, with new approaches designed to meet the ever-changing needs of customers and colleagues. These include increasing our use of remote-working tools and technology, as well as placing less reliance on a 9-to-5 mindset.

Our five support networks are open to any colleague to join.
Each network has a different focus and is run by volunteers who feel as passionately about inclusion as we do. Benefits of membership include career development, mentoring and accessing role models – enabling and inspiring everyone to unlock their full potential.
Breakthrough and Family Matters are 2 of our 5 networks and offer the following support.
Breakthrough supports female talent at all levels of the Group. As the UK’s biggest women’s network, Breakthrough works to lead our industry by increasing gender diversity among senior management.
Family Matters supports colleagues at all stages of their family journey, whether it’s pre-pregnancy, pre-parenting, adoption and fostering, mothers and fathers, caring for a loved one or any other home life situation.
Together we make it possible.

“I was fortunate enough to become a father for the 2nd and 3rd time after the arrival of twins – Orla and Rory – in December 2018.
The current paternity leave allowance is amazing and I really noticed the difference compared to the 2 weeks I was entitled to when Ewan (our eldest) was born in 2016.
When Orla and Rory were born it meant that we had three children under 3 – a challenge at the best of times – however, 6 weeks away allowed me to spend 100% of my time focused on my family and getting used to multi-tasking!
I am incredibly grateful for the time off I received as it allowed me to bond with Orla and Rory but also spend time with Ewan helping him adjust to his new brother and sister. Additionally, the flexibility that the Group has provided in 2020/21 to all working parents has really assisted me and my family. Juggling home schooling, schools runs and parenting during various lockdowns/restrictions has been a real challenge, however, the ability to work around my family (rather than set times/days) has allowed me to fulfil both my responsibilities at work and at home.
Finally, what’s great is that the Group offers a number of other flex benefits – personally I really value the peace of mind that the BUPA family cover brings. Fortunately I had never had to use it but it is great to know it is there.”
