You will work within a diverse team to exceed customer expectations and support their business’s growth. You will gain an understanding of Commercial Banking, HSBC’s customers, and the products and services the bank offers them. Throughout the internship, you will have the opportunity to network with fellow Interns, HSBC employees, and senior leaders within the business. To ensure Commercial Banking is equipped for the present and future, we use new technology to help us to interact better with our clients. You will have the opportunity to learn about these technologies, how they benefit our business and how they are used in our product teams.

    What you will do

    This internship aims to give you an idea of where you could fit within our business. Commercial Banking Interns are placed on a team during their ten-week summer program. To help you explore your interests and gain confidence in your abilities, you will take a hands-on role, where you can learn about our international capabilities and the 1.3 million business customers our Commercial Bank serves. Whatever degree you are doing, HSBC will support you to find an area you can succeed in, gaining the necessary skills to make your mark.

    Who does this suit?

    We are looking for collaborative and dedicated people who are:

    • Avid networkers. From clients to colleagues, you can have an active social role, putting our business customers at the heart of what you do. You will form trusted relationships, working together to find the right solution for the right client.
    • Diverse thinkers. Bringing fresh ideas to the table will get you noticed in a dynamic and important area of our bank. With your energized, courageous, and proactive attitude, you can identify areas of improvement quickly and find better ways of developing them.
    • Curious learners. Showing the motivation to learn about our Commercial Bank and the products we offer is essential in helping you develop a career with us. You will strive to become a credible expert, allowing people to trust your suggestions.
    • Team players. You will work alongside senior leaders and peers across an international network to connect businesses with opportunities. So, you must bring a team-orientated attitude to your approach.
    • Digital problem solvers. The role of a Commercial Bank is changing, becoming much more technology-focused and entrepreneurial. This means we need you to be courageous and proactive when searching for better solutions and making use of the resources we have around us – such as other business areas and new technology.

    What can this lead to?

    If you excel during the Internship, you will be extended a return offer to join our Commercial Banking Graduate Analyst Program, where you will have the opportunity to build an international network and collaborate with clients in both developed and developing markets, helping to make a real difference to the communities where we operate.
