The benefits

The HSBC Work Experience Programme has been designed to provide students with exposure to the banking sector. At HSBC we are offering students with a variety of placements across our different business areas.

The requirements

All of the sessions are free to attend, and will be hosted via Zoom. We are operating on a first-come first-serve basis owing to attendee size restrictions on Zoom Webinars. We ask that any interested parties sign up via the link below in order to help us manage numbers. If you sign up and then cannot attend, please notify us so that your place may be allocated to someone else. Unfortunately, these sessions will not be recorded so we cannot circulate them after they have taken place.
