HSBC is one of the world’s largest banking and financial services organisations. HSBC have 280,000 people that operate in 85 countries and territories, serving a customer base of around 89 million. They aim to be where the growth is, connect customers to opportunities and enable businesses to thrive and economies prosper.
Once, banks were built for North American and European finance. But traditional economies have started to shift while new markets emerge and old ones slow down. The world is changing the way it does business – and where it does business. HSBC has always looked in new directions to create teams, resources and relationships. With a strong global network that reaches into emerging economies and established markets, HSBC is shaped for the future.
At HSBC, there’s always room for difference, but everyone shares a focus on teamwork, a feeling of community and mutual respect. It’s a culture focused on doing the right thing where people take responsibility for their actions.
By focusing on the long term, HSBC can build on its achievements; look for new opportunities and never lose sight of its heritage. People are proud to be part of an organisation that’s always moving forward – and doing so responsibly. Now, HSBC want people who share a focus on the bigger picture and are ready for the global challenges and opportunities that they offer.
For first-year undergraduates, we offer the following: a three-day Spring Insight Programme or a paid seven-week retail banking internship. The Spring Insight Programme is designed to give you an introduction to the Global Banking and Markets businesses through learning sessions, workshops, a trading floor tour and networking events. The retail banking internship will let you gain first-hand experience at one of our branches. In your penultimate year of university, you can join our ten-week structured Summer Analyst Programme across a range of global business areas, or, you could take part in a seven-week placement in commercial banking working with a relationship management team.
One thing all these opportunities have in common is a chance to impress us with your abilities and be fast-tracked to the next programme, or get offered a full-time graduate position.
For graduates, that means there’s a platform for talent that offers global experience and exposure to new markets. The challenges are real and graduates become integral members of a network that stretches around the world. At HSBC, graduates can see past their short term goals to build long and rewarding careers.
