Our size and global reach mean we offer many ways for you to develop your career.

We offer a range of options for students who are currently at university, whether you are in your first, penultimate or final year of your undergraduate or postgraduate course.

Global Asset Management Internship

On this competitively paid internship, you’ll spend ten weeks being a part of a forward-thinking team, understanding how HSBC connects customers and clients globally with various investment opportunities. You will complete your placement within investments, business development and sales or product.

What you can expect

On our Global Asset Management Internship, you can expect to be part of a worldwide network, working with people of different cultures, international clients and diverse teams.

You will be working in either the UK or Hong Kong. You will be continually challenged and given responsibility, and will be supported by our experts who are ready to pass on their understanding of our clients and knowledge behind the complexities of working in a multinational bank.

What you will do

You will not only learn about the breadth of the impact of our work, from regional and individual accounts to multinational and investment opportunities, but you will discover the importance behind risk management and data analysis. You will explore how a dedicated and curious attitude can go far when it comes to offering our clients a better service.

Who does this suit?

We’re looking for collaborative and courageous people who are:

Strategic thinkers. We might be an international-focused bank, but it’s critical to our success that we consider local strategies, becoming regional guides for our clients. You should be energised by the opportunity to provide better ways of working for our clients

Problem solvers. We will task you with a range of projects that will require you to listen to clients and devise solutions based on their needs. Having an analytical and innovative approach will help you to reach solutions faster

Opportunity takers. We are an international company offering many opportunities. Jumping at the chance to take on a new global client or a new meaningful and rewarding project will show that you’ve got the motivation to move up to the next level

Sociable networkers. You will need to be able help solve customer problems while keeping a level head – a dedication to keeping your clients happy will go far

What can this lead to?

If your internship goes well, you could be considered for our Global Asset Management Graduate Programme. From there, you will have the opportunity to progress to an exciting role with us.

We select people on a first-come, first-served basis – so if you’re interested, apply as early as possible before the positions are filled.

Eligibility requirements: On track for a minimum upper second class undergraduate degree and 300 UCAS points (or equivalent excluding General studies)
