Retail Banking & Wealth Management Summer Internship

We are looking for forward-thinking, driven and perceptive undergraduates to join our Summer Internships and ultimately our global Graduate Programme.

During this eight-week rotational Summer Internship you’ll get first-hand experience of serving our personal customers in Retail Banking and Wealth Management. You’ll gain an understanding of the range and complexity of our Retail Banking business and see how your skills fit.

Supported throughout by a line manager and buddy, you’ll also have the opportunity to build your network and be part of a charity project, and on completion you could secure a place on our RBWM Graduate Programme.

The role of the Penultimate Year Summer Internship is to provide students in their penultimate year of study with the chance to gain an invaluable insight into banking with a leading global bank. Hands-on experience and on-the-job training will give you a head start, as the Internship consists of two four-week rotations; one in a customer facing role, the other in one of our specialist teams in head office so you can better appreciate the range and complexity of our business.

During your eight-week internship we will provide you with practical training to complement your academic studies and you will be challenged to use your talents and academic knowledge to add value to the bank and improve your professional and personal skills. You will be paid during your internship, but you may find the greatest benefit is the stepping-stone it can provide to a rewarding full-time career at HSBC.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Gaining an understanding of the Retail Banking network and developing an awareness of products, services and processes through customer facing engagement
  • Ensuring the fair treatment of our customers is at the heart of everything we do, both personally and as an organisation
  • Actively contributing towards activities that have a positive impact on Retail Banking and Wealth Managements financial performance

  • Demonstrate working collaboratively with others colleagues, supporting them when possible
  • Have experience of personally complying with business processes, rules and regulations
  • Have experience of building effective customer relationships which create customer advocacy

In addition to the details listed above, the ideal candidate will be proactive, forward-thinking, ready to challenge the status quo, with strong drive and determination, keen to learn and develop at all times, have a natural ability to build relationships with colleagues and a willingness to deliver on difficult assignments, possess an aptitude for understanding the underlying strategy which underpins the bank direction, be skilled at project management and have a keen interest in business development.
