Aspring Female Potential


The Aspiring Female Potential Programme, which takes place in August, has been designed with the view that not everyone knows what they want to do when they leave university, never mind school. As a final year A-Level student, you'll gain an early insight into the world of investment banking and you'll be offered a glimpse of what the future could hold for you.

You'll spend three days with us, learning about the various functions of a global investment bank, meeting inspirational people from across HSBC, and developing skills that will be beneficial not only at school but at university and beyond. It's a chance for you to strengthen your CV and gain practical networking opportunities for your future. It's never too early to start exploring your career options; we believe our School Insight Programme will help you do just that.

What to expect

During the programme, successful applicants will participate in the following:
Classroom-based presentations
Case studies
Interactive seminars
Skills sessions
Trading floor tours
We hope you'll leave us with a clear understanding of what we do, how we do it and where you may fit in. Investment banking is an exciting, challenging and fast-paced industry, and you may be surprised at just how many opportunities there are for talented individuals.

Information for parents and teachers

At HSBC, we recognise the value of offering support and development opportunities to students of all ages. We believe it's important to help students make credible decisions about career choices and equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to develop. The HSBC Aspiring Female Potential Programme not only offers an insight into the world of investment banking, but also develops valuable public speaking and presentation skills. Of course, the programme will strengthen their CVs and afford networking opportunities for the future.

The programme will commence at 9 am and conclude at approximately 5 pm. Breakfast, lunch and refreshments will be provided during the day. The programme will be taking place at our offices in Canary Wharf in London. Students will be responsible for their own accommodation and travel arrangements.
