    In light of contemporary austerity measures, Lloyds Bank is reinforcing its commitment to the education, community and government sectors, as explained by Simon Kimberley, Head of Government Sector Team, Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking.
  • The positive news about the British economy in 2013 has made refreshing reading throughout the year, and the growing vigour of the private sector from its position of consolidation over the past few years will undoubtedly support the UK economy’s return to strength.

    However, across the public sector, there remains the need to embrace austerity measures and look for further efficiencies and support from supply chain partners.

    That’s something we understand fully at Lloyds Bank and as the leading provider of banking services in the Education, Community and Government sectors, we remain committed to building strong and lasting relationships with all of our customers.

    Revitalising support

    You may have noticed that the Lloyds Bank brand was recently updated. This was part of the Bank’s ambition to revitalise our commitment to better serve organisations and businesses across the country.

    That commitment is reinforced by our dedication to Education, Community and Government organisations and we’re continuing to support agencies seeking greater efficiencies in these times of austerity. Our local Relationship Directors provide access to a range of corporate banking, cash management and risk management solutions that can be tailored to match each individual organisation’s unique needs, while providing access to knowledge and forecasting from the Bank’s wider support teams.

    Our commitment means understanding contemporary issues affecting the sectors we work with and working hard to support organisations in light of regulation change and the ever changing political and economic environment. For example, we are expanding our national teams that look after Local Authority customers to enhance our commitment to organisations within this sector. By bringing in many innovating solutions to those customers, and to other customers moving their account to the Bank, we are providing cost savings that Local Authorities find rewarding.

    Community commitment

    Our commitment to the work of public sector agencies is complemented by our community enterprise work. Under our Doing More programme, for example, we are collaborating with clients to help drive real benefits for many of the UK’s most challenged areas. This is not just through financial support, but by sharing skills and services, and providing access to expert guidance.

    We’re also seconding 60 senior managers from across the Bank to work in deprived communities and financially supporting other commercial businesses who want to do the same. Through our School for Entrepreneurs programme, we’ve also provided a forum for pitching ideas to help support scholarship and grant applications from individuals, often from difficult backgrounds. This also includes mentoring from the Bank and we supported 154 people that way last year.

    Across the bank, we have a lot of different skills sets and we want our colleagues to feel proud that we’re a business which recognises how these can be applied outside of our own business to support long-term sustainable communities.
