At HSBC, we offer a wide range of opportunities to students and graduates to start their career in banking and financial services – from work experience, internships and global graduate programmes to entry-level positions.

The world is changing. New trade routes are emerging. Centres of wealth are shifting. In this dynamic climate, HSBC aspires to be the world’s leading and most respected international bank and we’re looking for progressive minds to join us.

Our unrivalled global presence gives us access to many of the world’s major trade and capital flows and we have a leading position in the world’s highest-growth markets, including the Asia-Pacific region. Within these markets we serve our customers through our global businesses: Commercial Banking, Global Banking and Markets, Global Private Banking and Retail Banking and Wealth Management. These businesses are supported by a range of operational and functional teams.

We recruit talented students and graduates who share our vision for long-term, sustainable growth that is achieved in the right way. We need forward-thinking, driven, perceptive people to help our customers realise their hopes, dreams and ambitions. This means people who are dependable, open to different ideas and cultures and enjoy being part of a team.

Our global internship and graduate programmes are designed to develop the most talented students and graduates to be the future leaders of HSBC. Each programme is designed to provide you with the technical expertise and personal skills you will need to forge a successful career along a clear development path.

We offer an inclusive environment that supports flexible working, treats people with respect and welcomes different opinions. We assign everyone a buddy and a mentor and our leaders will support and encourage you to drive your own development. You will also have the opportunity to take part in the many sustainability activities that we run, contributing to the communities in which we work.

We currently offer global internships and graduate programmes in our four, globally connected businesses.
