Who we are

HSBC is one of the largest banking and financial services organisations in the world. In 71 countries and territories serving around 46 million customers, our ambition is to be where the growth is, connecting customers to opportunities, enabling businesses to thrive and economies to prosper.

Our structure

Our network covers both established and emerging markets across Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and North Africa, North America and Latin America. 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.

HSBC and you

We are looking for forward-thinking, driven and perceptive graduates who will become the future leaders of HSBC.

You’ll join a team providing wealth management advice and tailored investment solutions to help our high-net-worth clients and their families grow, manage and preserve their wealth. You will start with the Global Induction Programme in August 2016, with colleagues from around the world who have joined other programmes. Through four placements, each lasting six months, you will gain a wide exposure to our business.

You’ll learn how to build relationships with our clients, understand their circumstances and create a wealth management strategy that meets their financial goals. You’ll develop the expertise to advise clients on the most appropriate investment products, and how best to invest private client funds. You’ll gain the knowledge to advise business owners on their finances, taking into account issues such as succession planning and charitable activities.

Throughout, you’ll build detailed knowledge of our investment products and services, which extend across all asset classes. We work in close partnership with Commercial Banking and our other global businesses, and you’ll see how we aim to provide the best of HSBC to our high-net-worth clients.

Wherever you join us, we will support, guide and develop you, while our leaders will help you to be the best you can be, reflecting your interests and capabilities. During your rotations, you’ll benefit from a training programme that includes regular access to coaching and advice on your progress, as well as frequent and constructive feedback on your performance. Valuable, hands-on coaching and experience will develop your technical and behavioural skills, enabling you to take advantage of the exceptional global opportunities we offer. We will provide everything you need to move up, although you will drive your own development.
