HSBC and you

What you can expect

Our Global Banking and Markets business is a dynamic and exciting environment with GLCM servicing the full range of HSBC clients from small local businesses to large corporates, other banks and governments spanning the globe.

After a week of induction and initial training, we will provide in-depth insight into how our colleagues work together to meet client needs; supporting them in optimising their cash flows, providing greater security, at a lower cost. You will learn how treasury functions look to optimise capital management, manage their surplus cash, optimise interest earnings, and manage global payables, receivables and everything in between. Having a drive to become a key member of a global network could help you to become one of our leaders of tomorrow.

What will you do

We enable clients to make payments, receive funds and have visibility of their cash balances across the world, ultimately supporting their growth by helping them make smarter business decisions. You will quickly become a part of the team and you will be given responsibility from day one. You will build expertise in product development, business management, risk management and sales, alongside senior leaders and peers who are always willing to support you.

Whether you know where you want your career to take you or not, GLCM opens a world of opportunities with exposure to large international clients and dynamic projects. You can take on the kind of responsibility you may never have experienced before. GLCM is committed to ensuring your internship gives you a thorough understanding of the opportunities available and a genuine sense of what life as an HSBC graduate would be like.

Learning and Development

We take your learning and development seriously so that you get the most out of your internship. Your time with us will begin with a one-week induction and training that will give you an overview of HSBC, our business and culture, and how GLCM fits into the overall structure. After this, your placement will provide you with a combination of practical experience and classroom training. This will help you to develop your technical skills and give you a detailed insight into our markets.

At the beginning of your internship, you’ll be set measurable objectives and receive feedback throughout the 10 weeks. There will be many people you can call on for support and guidance.

There will be regular business and social events to attend so you can build a network of contacts, which will prove invaluable to you in the future.

We offer a market-competitive pay and benefits package according to your role and location.
