Job Description

About this opportunity

Be part of a team that is purpose driven, customer focussed, agile and friendly and accountable for providing legal advice across the business on a very broad range of employment issues.

Join the HR Legal team within Group Legal to support the People & Places Function and our wider LBG businesses, supporting those who support our customers.


  • Be required to proactively identify and manage key employment legal risks and their implications for LBG so that you can support the business with pragmatic, solution focused advice;
  • Have an ability to rapidly switch between different issues and priorities;
  • Have the autonomy to handle your own workload and you’ll also work across teams;
  • Support the senior lawyers in the team and the Head of HR Legal to ensure appropriate cover according to team and business needs;
  • Share knowledge across the team and continually develop your skills; and
  • Support the team’s initiative to provide training to the People team on relevant legal topics.

More broadly, you’ll:

  • Support strategic activities of the Legal & Secretariat Function which align to LBG's purpose, strategy and culture.
  • Demonstrate our values and behaviours to support our culture; and
  • Build and maintain a strong internal network and key customer and colleague connections.

About us

We’re on an exciting journey and there couldn’t be a better time to join us. The investments we’re making in our people, data, and technology are leading to innovative projects, fresh possibilities, and countless new ways for us to work, learn, and thrive.

What you'll need

Are you:

  • Legally qualified with 7+ years' PQE and skills in a broad range of contentious and non-contentious employment law matters, gained, ideally, in an established in-house legal team or a leading private practice firm;
  • Someone with strong commercial awareness and an ability to build deep customer relationships by having a customer focussed approach;
  • Someone with a growth mindset, curious to learn and develop yourself to acquire the skills of the future; and
  • Wanting to develop your internal personal profile and network, including within Legal & Secretariat and with business customers?

About working for us

Our focus is to ensure we're inclusive every day, building an organisation that reflects modern society and celebrates diversity in all its forms. We want our people to feel that they belong and can be their best, regardless of background, identity or culture.

We were one of the first major organisations to set goals on diversity in senior roles, create a menopause health package, and a dedicated Working with Cancer initiative, and it’s why we especially welcome applications from under-represented groups. We’re disability confident. So if you’d like reasonable adjustments to be made to our recruitment processes, just let us know.

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

• A generous pension contribution of up to 15%
• An annual performance-related bonus
• Share schemes including free shares
• Benefits you can adapt to your lifestyle, such as 
discounted shopping
• 30 days’ holiday, with bank holidays on top
• A range of wellbeing initiatives and generous parental 
leave policies.

If you’re excited by the thought of becoming part of our team, get in touch. 
We’d love to hear from you.

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.
