Why we need you

The UK Work Experience Programme is for students looking for a work experience placement with a leading global bank. The programme provides opportunities to gain some hands-on experience, develop your knowledge of banking and financial services, and explore the careers available at HSBC in the UK. Students should note that this is an unpaid work experience programme.

The benefits

Supported by experienced managers, you will be shadowing colleagues and encouraged to ask questions to help you understand more about HSBC. During the work experience, you will learn what it is like to work in one of our retail, commercial, operational or head office areas (subject to availability).

You will get to know HSBC – our values, our history and exactly what we do – and gain an insight into actual jobs that you would be doing if you came to work for us full-time. There will be an opportunity to work on a live project and share your ideas with managers.

whether you decide to start an apprenticeship or go to university in the future, the work experience programme is a great early insight into a potential career choice
