At Lloyds Banking Group we're driven by a clear purpose; to help Britain prosper. Across the Group our colleagues are passionate about making a difference to customers, businesses and communities.

Our Commercial Banking division has a rich heritage of supporting businesses and the economic prosperity of the nation, passionate about UK businesses and those with strong links to the UK. We provide customers with the support they need to help them grow, manage risk and improve efficiency. We also continue to invest in our relationship teams and deepen our product expertise to ensure we deliver first class service.

Commercial Banking provides support to corporate clients through the provision of core banking products, such as lending, deposits and transaction banking services whilst also offering clients expertise in capital markets (private placements, bonds and syndicated loans), financial markets (foreign exchange, interest rate management, money market and credit) and private equity. This enables us to meet the varying and sometimes complex needs of all types of corporate clients.

Our Control Function works in partnership with our businesses to support sustainable growth while enabling quality customer service and keeping our customers safe. We design processes to execute effective operational risk practices through the application of key controls.

We're looking for a new colleague to join our Trade Surveillance team, supporting our Financing and Sales & Traded Products business areas. The team is responsible for the day to day trade monitoring activity, including Price Transparency, Client Best Interest and Market Integrity.

You'll use our trade surveillance tools to identify issues for investigation, taking responsibility to see them through to a satisfactory resolution. You'll analyse large amounts of data to identify patterns, trends and anomalies, then take action to mitigate any risks or areas of concern. You'll provide MI for key desk and business unit risk committees so that meaningful decisions can be made.

You'll need to have a good understanding of Fixed Income, Money Market and FX products including vanilla derivative products. You'll need to have an understanding of the Markets business and lifecycle of a trade. Previous experience in product control would be helpful, particularly with experience of undertaking complex business reviews. Alternatively, you may come from a background in risk management or another analytical/quantitative business area. Whilst not essential, a qualification such as ACA/ACCA, IIA, CFA, FRM, PRM or Institute of Bankers would be helpful.

It's important to have a good level of Excel knowledge and able to manage large data sets (VBA preferable) but you'll also need to be able to understand and explain the facts that sit behind the data. Your written and verbal communication skills will help you to develop relationships with other stakeholders and drive through improvements to the control framework.

If you have the skills we're looking for, and if you want to play a part in helping Britain prosper, then we'd like to hear from you.

We're dedicated to giving you opportunities and support to develop you both professionally and personally and to optimise your potential.

As a new colleague of Lloyds Banking Group, you'll join us on our journey to build a 21st century bank that reflects modern Britain, and build an inclusive culture where all colleagues feel welcomed and valued.

Together we make it possible.
