One of the biggest challenges in my role is the fast pace and complex nature of my work. It is also one of the highlights.
Since joining HSBC, I have become much more determined to succeed and go the extra mile than when I was a student. The training is structured to make you a future leader of the bank and that is my ambition. I am learning how ideas are respected here and that gives me the opportunity to prove myself. I want to grow in the bank, and my manager supports my career aspirations.
When I started as a trainee I was thinking of becoming a Relationship Manager. I have shifted my focus and I now help the Business Banking group in formulating and implementing strategy. I prepare and brief my manager on different strategic initiatives and how they will impact the business. I get experience of both local and group-wide initiatives. It’s really helping to prepare me for a long-term career at the bank.
