Regardless of what subject you have studied, on our competitively paid ten-week internship you will explore the work we do in Corporate Banking or Investment Banking by becoming involved in real, challenging projects. What you can expect
You will gain an introduction to one of the most dynamic areas of our business. We drive the growth of our clients' businesses through a balance of generating trust and analysing markets in order to raise capital. Whether you are in Corporate Banking or Investment Banking you will be involved in an exciting project that will give you an insight into how determination, courageous decision-making and logical thinking are essential to our work. You will learn about the products and services we offer across our international network and connect with supportive colleagues in multiple areas. With their help and guidance, and some formal training, you will build your strengths so you can drive your development further. What you will do
In Corporate Banking, you will gain first-hand experience of how our relationship managers, working closely with our product specialists, create innovative solutions to meet the banking needs of our largest corporate and institutional clients. You will have the opportunity to understand how we build trusted relationships with our clients, gain a great overview of the breadth of products HSBC can offer and see how we respond to our clients' need by deploying these products into tailored solutions across multiple countries. You will also see how we help the bank manage the risk inherent from dealing with these clients, to ensure we foster a sustainable business model.
In Investment Banking, you can get a taste of how we work closely with clients to understand their long-term strategic goals. This enables us to deliver tailored financial and advisory solutions designed to meet the individual needs of our corporate, financial and public-sector clients. Working alongside industry experts, you'll develop a wide range of skills and knowledge.
Your time here will be challenging and you'll gain a breadth of experiences and gain a good understanding of what we do, from debt and equity capital raising, advisory, corporate lending, leveraged finance, asset and structured finance, real estate, infrastructure and project finance, and export credit. Who does this suit?
We are looking for dedicated, courageous and curious people who are:
What can this lead to?
- Fast learners. You will collaborate with new people on constantly evolving projects to help our clients. Quickly building your knowledge will give you credibility when working with colleagues and solving client problems
- Intellectual curiosity. Our Global Banking business has a unique breadth of products in terms of what we offer and where we offer these solutions.
- 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. This means having an analytical and strategic mind and focusing on client objectives
- Supportive team players. Teamwork is an important part of our business, and your development. Having a collaborative attitude will help you build a network of peers who are there to support you, and be supported too
Perform well and you'll be considered for our Global Banking Graduate Programme, where you will specialise in either Corporate Banking or Investment Banking, gaining a further understanding of that business area. You will learn more about our products and services, and how you can provide sound advice for clients. Bring the right mindset and this internship could potentially lead you on a challenging and rewarding journey.
