About HSBC

Around the world, growth is bringing new prosperity; businesses are pioneering new trade routes; and new centres of wealth and influence are emerging. Throughout its history, HSBC employees have been dedicated to connecting customers to this growth, enabling business to thrive and economies to prosper. With 3,800 offices in 65 countries and territories, serving more than 38 million customers in both established and emerging markets, HSBC are well positioned to create sustainable growth whilst serving our customers.

HSBC aims to be a true reflection of the customers they serve and communities they operate in.

HSBC are looking for people with drive and aspiration, those who think, see, and do things differently and who can represent and relate to our diverse global customer base.

As a bank, HSBC enables businesses to thrive and economies to prosper, helping people fulfil their hopes and realise their ambitions. This means people are at the heart of everything they do.

HSBC encourages talent from all backgrounds to join their business. They believe that being open to a range of perspectives and cultures is vital for their business. They work hard to ensure that HSBC is a diverse and inclusive workplace that reflects the communities they serve. They want everyone to achieve their potential – regardless of their gender, ethnicity, disability, religion, sexual orientation, gender identification, or age.

HSBC have found that Apprenticeship opportunities are one of the very best ways to equip people with the skills they need to succeed. These opportunities all provide an alternative to the classical A-level and university pathways; with a range of different learning methods designed to fit their way of learning such as workplace teaching, classroom-based learning, online courses, on the job training and independent study.

In order to provide the best possible service to our customers, we are always looking to recruit the best and diverse talent whilst also developing our employees’ skills to meet the needs of the bank and our customers. We work with our global employee networks to create an environment where everyone feels included and supported. We have four values which our employees live be; they shape our decisions and day-to-day actions and therefore define our culture. These are valuing difference, succeeding together, taking responsibility and getting it done.

We offer our employees flexibility with their working style to support their wellbeing and work/life balance. The majority of our roles are hybrid, meaning employees work part of the week in one of our offices, and part of the week from home. Our offices are modern, open-plan, accessible, and inclusive. The majority of our offices have their own restaurants, as well as multi-faith rooms and on-site gyms with classes during lunch and after work. You could also work in our branches, which are our high street banks and customer service centres, based in many cities and towns in the UK.

We are really proud to have won many awards for our amazing Emerging Talent Programmes. These include Best 100 apprenticeship employers, 2022 – 2023; Best Onboarding & Induction Programme – Institute of Student Employers 2023; and Top 100 Work Experience and Apprentice Employers 2021: HSBC UK 4th 2022: 2nd.
