    Well, had my assessment centre yesterday for the internship scheme.

    Seemed extremely well organised and administered. Still struggling to connect what I saw yesterday with their ridiculously poor track record of replying to email's and phone calls...

    It was in Solihull :\

    They put me in a hotel overnight though so not too bad. My Friday timetable is pretty light this term so I didn't miss much; just a lecture that is, at the best of times, of questionable importance!

    What tests did you have to do? Reasoning, verbal etc? If you can PM with details that'd be amazing!

    Standard SHL Logical Reasoning. 40 questions in 20 minutes; if you finish them all then kudos! I had about 4 or 5 left but its not negatively marked so make sure you get something down!

    The format where you get 5 diagrams and then have to work out which one will come next.

    No maths in sight!

    EFA: This is all for the General Management scheme. I'm pretty certain that the other streams are the same but I can't be 100% sure..

    I can't really give you any advice here as there is no way to prepare for them. Just be confident but not cocky and try to include everyone while standing out a bit in the group exercise. And as for the presentation; there's no such thing as a "wrong answer" but you have to be ready to justify what you say- it's worth thinking about the sort of questions you are likely to be asked during your preparation time as if you can't offer a convincing answer then it could get very awkward..!

    Good luck!

    Hi all,

    I have been up to Solihull this Thursday and did my assessment centre. I got a missed call today with a voice mail telling me that i have been offered a place for the summer internship. i do not know any details yet though, as they will contact me back on Monday, will post more details when i know more.

    So there is some promptness there from lloyds, and for those going up, I would give three advices: practice reading quickly, practice logical tests (symbols sequence) and know some current events about lloyds.

    In preparing the last point, I would search lloyds on news website and look at other peoples opinions of it, and also form your own opinions. There is a good article on last fridays economist about he Uk banking sector too.

    Best of luck, anyone secured a place on the finance intern, please contact me, will be gald to get to know you.

    So i had my telephone interview finally yesterday morning for the Corporate Markets summer internship. All seemed to go very well, felt good about it all. Glad to have finally had my interview after being emailed in November saying an interview would be scheduled in December, then eventually booking one in early january then them failing to ring me, then rescheduling for last week of Jan, then my interviewer was off ill so had to be rebooked for 10 days later. Finally I had my interview, and have been emailed saying:

    "At this time we are close to filling our target of offers for the 2011 intake for the Lloyds Banking Group Corporate Markets and Finance Intern programmes.
    We have received a large number of applications for a limited number of available internships for Summer 2011. We have already filled the assessment centres that were required to achieve our recruitment targets.

    Consequently we are unable to progress your application further. We regret any disappointment and inconvenience this may cause you.

    If our target increases we may look to contact existing applicants, such as yourself. If this is required, we will contact applicants with priority going to those whose applications had been started the earliest and had progressed the furthest in the recruitment process."


    Has anyone had the same? Feel slightly robbed, as surely there would have been places back in early January when I originally booked gutted.
