I'm someone who wants to stand up for what is right – and HSBC does the same, even in difficult situations

Being half-Brazilian and half-Uruguayan, I found the UK working environment quite challenging when I did an internship at HSBC’s Commercial Centre in London. Despite the cultural differences, the internship made me aware of what HSBC could offer. Working for an international bank, I knew that global opportunities would be available and HSBC would invest in my training and development. I am someone who wants to stand up for what is right – and HSBC does the same, even in difficult situations.

The Executive Management Trainee Programme was brilliant. I attended the Group Graduate Development Programme in the UK. We did activities such as abseiling and rock climbing in the Lake District to learn about ourselves. I also met people from countries I knew nothing about, such as Saudi Arabia, which was a fascinating experience for me.

Exposure to different sectors has given me knowledge about banking and business. My first placement in Retail Banking and Wealth Management developed my people skills. My second, as a Corporate Banking Analyst in Corporate and Structured Banking, enhanced my technical understanding. Now, I am on my project placement in Global Trade and Receivables Finance, part of Commercial Banking. By managing projects independently, my leadership and time management skills have improved. As well as concentrating on my job, I am studying for a BSc in Banking Practice and Finance. I am also a member of the Executive Trainee Forum, which involves organising events and conferences for graduates.

With so much happening, it helps that I can work remotely with my laptop and phone. Flexible hours and remote working mean I can really concentrate on what I am doing. Almost every member of the team works from home at least once a week. It is all about planning ahead and making sure we can answer e-mails and calls quickly.
