Who are we and what do we do:
Throughout our history we have been where the growth is, connecting customers to opportunities. We enable businesses to thrive and economies to prosper, helping people fulfil their hopes and dreams and realise their ambitions. This is our role and purpose.
HSBC is one of the world's largest banking and financial services organisations serving some 48 million customers around the world. We aim to be the world's leading international bank, and we'll help deliver on this by recruiting talented students from all walks of life who share our vision. In the UK we serve our customers through our global businesses, which are in turn supported by our global functions. We have many entry points for students and graduates who may be interested in starting their career at HSBC. Opportunities range from work experience and apprenticeships to internships, graduate programmes and entry level positions. Anyone who performs well and shares our values could become the future leaders of our bank. A world of possibilities is here for you.

We look for people who are ambitious and want to develop their career while making a strong contribution to HSBC's long-term, sustainable growth. To ensure we achieve this growth in the right way, we place great emphasis on our values, and are committed to applying the highest standards everywhere we do business.

At HSBC we recognise that the talent and diversity of our people is the foundation of our success, so we are committed to helping you develop your personal and professional skills in order to bring out your strengths.
Your manager will help you to identify potential opportunities and the capabilities you will need to be effective in your role.
