Homeworking: Option to work from home after initial 3 month training and supervision*

We're currently looking for caring people to join our contact centre teams to support customers from our Lloyds Bank, Bank of Scotland and Halifax brands.

And beyond the satisfaction of helping people a role with us brings other rewards…

We'll give you an initial cash package of £20,063 comprising a full time equivalent basic salary of £19,292 and a Flex cash pot of £771.

This pot you can take as cash or spend on a wide range of options such as:

  • Buying extra or selling holidays to suit from your 30 days leave (pro rata, including bank holidays) - ideal for half terms or that mini break.
  • Extending the private medical cover you'll receive to family members.
  • A Flex Card providing up to 15% discount with over 70 well known retailers.
  • Tax/NI efficient electric vehicle (or bike) purchasing schemes paid through your monthly pay - supporting sustainability!

  • A generous pension contribution starting at 9% (rising to 15%) which comes with life cover of up to 8x salary.
  • Further everyday discounts on the weekly food shop, travel and electronics/mobile through our PerksAtWork scheme.

    We also have a number of free health and well-being offerings and generous maternity/paternity/adoption leave policies.

    Everything is geared to suit your lifestyle... and you can also be sure that we're investing in your future.

    If you care about making a difference to people and you think you can do this amazingly over the phone then this could be the opportunity you're looking for...

So what's involved?

You'll be taking customer calls and doing your best to help the person at the other end of the line (we also connect via social media, web-chat and remote advice video calls).

You'll take the care to understand what matters to them and if you don't know the answer then you'll have access to plenty of colleagues that do…

From day one we'll teach you all about our products and processes and you'll learn how respond to queries quickly and become better every day...

What skills are we looking for?

  • Crucially, you're a people person - working with your team to provide a really crucial service to millions of customers.
  • The passion to put yourself in the customers' shoes, show empathy and be dedicated to resolving their query.
  • The commitment to deliver on your promises and going above and beyond for your customer.

    No need for any previous financial services experience - we'll provide all the training required across a comprehensive 4-week training programme.

We'll just need you to commit to a specified shift pattern for a minimum of 12 months (after which you can request a change to your working pattern to suit you).

We're passionate about diversity and equal opportunity with industry recognition across gender, ethnicity, disability, LGBTQ+ and families.

Just let us know if any reasonable adjustments are needed to our recruitment processes and we'll try to accommodate them...

So if you have the passion for helping people we're looking for then we'd love to hear from you...

Our roles often generate a lot of interest and can close early so don't miss this chance to apply!

* At present colleagues can request to become Home Workers from 3 months tenure, which is subject to Senior Manager approval and satisfying performance behavioural requirements.

At Lloyds Banking Group, we're driven by a clear purpose; to help Britain recover. Across the Group, our colleagues are focused on making a difference to customers, businesses and communities. With us you'll have a key role to play in shaping the financial services of the future, whilst the scale and reach of our Group means you'll have many opportunities to learn, grow and develop.
