Job Description Summary

JOB TITLE: Assistant Business Manager
SALARY: £38,295 - £51,060
LOCATIONS: Bristol, London, Edinburgh

Job Description

We’re on an exciting journey and there couldn’t be a better time to join us as a Business Manager. We’re throwing out the rulebook on what we have done in the past and are changing at pace – which is where you come in.

The investments we’re making in our people, data, and technology are leading to innovative projects, fresh possibilities, and countless new ways for our people to work, learn, and thrive. We are committed to investing in the future, and over the next few years, we are embarking on an unbelievable transformative journey for our infrastructure, our customers, and your career.

Why should you join?

As we go through our multi-billion-pound transformation, you will be a leading figure within the process. You’ll be engaging with stakeholders of all levels, across the business. You’ll be exposed to the key work being undertaken and will be the person assisting with the budgets for the platforms and collaborating with Product Owners and Engineering teams. With the experience and exposure across the business, there are some great opportunities to grow into more niche roles too, should you wish to.

Some of the other key things you’ll be doing are:

  • Supporting the Business Management Lead, Business Manager, and Platform Leads.
  • Act as a secretariat for Governance meetings, managing action logs, and preparing meeting materials.
  • Assisting with financial tracking, forecasting, and analysis related to technology cost and budgeting.
  • Supporting the production of key materials for delivery, financial, and operational positions.
  • Assisting with risk reporting, administration, and other risk management activities, including audits and control self-assessment.
  • Supporting headcount management, change activity, and QBR write-up for Product Owners.

What you’ll need

We’re not looking for people that know all the answers. We’re looking for people that thrive on being given a problem and finding a solution. We’re looking for people who are comfortable when they need to say no; who aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo and push back on stakeholders who may be more senior.

There are some things we are looking for in you though:

  • It’s essential that you are comfortable influencing, challenging and articulating to stakeholders of all levels – many of which will have differing priorities.
  • A background in program/project management and financial/risk management would be beneficial, especially from a complex organisation.
  • You’ll need to be proficient in Excel, PowerPoint, and automation tools like Power BI.
  • You’ll need excellent time management skills to handle multiple responsibilities and meet deadlines across a fast-moving and complex set of changing requirements.
  • Understanding of the financial services industry and agile experience in a complex organisation is beneficial.

We also offer a wide-ranging benefits package, which includes:

  • A generous pension contribution of up to 15%
  • An annual bonus award, subject to Group performance
  • Share schemes including free shares
  • Benefits you can adapt to your lifestyle, such as discounted shopping, current accounts, mortgages and season ticket loans
  • 28 days holiday, with bank holidays on top
  • A range of wellbeing initiatives and generous parental leave policies

No ordinary journey

We are currently going through a multi-billion-pound transformation at Lloyds Banking Group and as part of this, a career with us is no ordinary journey. The opportunities and experience available to you are unmatched. You’ll be at the forefront of change and will be part of something that impacts UK society as a whole.

We are building a team that embraces challenges and thrives in an environment where the answer isn't always clear. Want to do amazing work, that’s interesting and makes a difference to millions of people? Join our journey.

We are hiring multiple vacancies for this role so will begin reviewing application from early April.

At Lloyds Banking Group, we're driven by a clear purpose; to help Britain prosper. 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.

We keep your data safe. So, we'll only ever ask you to provide confidential or sensitive information once you have formally been invited along to an interview or accepted a verbal offer to join us which is when we run our background checks.  We'll always explain what we need and why, with any request coming from a trusted Lloyds Banking Group person. 

We're focused on creating a values-led culture and are committed to building a workforce which reflects the diversity of the customers and communities we serve. Together we’re building a truly inclusive workplace where all of our colleagues have the opportunity to make a real difference.
