“Lloyds Banking Group as an organisation really believes in talent. I have personally found that the DofE develops core skills in communication, teamworking, problem-solving, planning and leadership.
The DofE also encourages and develops self-belief, motivation, determination and how to overcome difficult situations with innovative thinking – all of which are key skills Lloyds Banking Group looks for when recruiting.”
– Stephen Smith, Managing Director – Customer Development and Innovation at Lloyds Banking Group
“The DofE has proved to be a highly rewarding experience for some of the young people in our organisation. It encourages them to work as a team, and builds their confidence, motivation and communication which, in turn, adds value to the role they play within the Lloyds Banking Group and the community.”
