Edward Lea, Senior Independent Director at RSA, said Scicluna's considerable knowledge and understanding of the financial services sector and his board experience would be real assets to the group.
"Martin will bring a fresh approach that will support our aims to deliver an excellent service to our customers and value for our shareholders," he said.
Lloyds announced Scicluna would step down from the board and leave the group in March 2013.
Scicluna said the last four years had been "incredibly challenging" for Lloyds but "the successful transformation of the group is now well under way".
