Social Mobility


"The company hires people based on their ability and potential, not their backgrounds."
Graduate, London
"HSBC has dedicated insight programmes and recruitment schemes aimed at bright students from disadvantaged backgrounds."
Graduate, London
"Opportunities are open to all applicants with appropriate ability and experience, regardless of background."
"HSBC give new interns and graduates a good salary, so that applicants can comfortably start out at the bank whatever their financial situation. As I understand there are also access schemes and 'experience' days, particularly for those living locally in East London. I have found the graduate class to be very diverse in terms of background."
Graduate, London
"Applicants are encouraged from all backgrounds and there is certainly no rule in place that automatically excludes individuals that meet the minimum criteria based on their social situation. There are a wide range of Universities represented within the graduate cohort."
