As a management trainee in Retail Banking and Wealth Management I’ve had rotations in product development, business management and in branches. The rotations differ greatly so I have to learn new skills and adapt quickly. It’s like putting a puzzle together: I am discovering how each piece of the business comes together to help our customers achieve their ambitions.
There are always projects that I can be involved with in addition to my day-to-day work. I help with campaigns to launch new products, seminars for customers and volunteer projects in our community. The chance to do different things and have new challenges every day is one of the things I enjoy the most about my job.
I always thought of myself of being international as I was born in Taiwan, grew up in Canada and attended university in the US. But the graduate programme has broadened my own horizons beyond my expectations. My ambitions for my own career have grown as HSBC challenges you to do your best and I know I am capable of a lot more than I initially realised.
