After a one-week induction, including IT and technical training tailored to Finance, you will complete a nine-week placement within a team. There, you will learn about finance control, financial management and project management.

We will offer you:

  • First-hand experience working on a project or day-to-day activities
  • Both practical experience and classroom training so that you will gain the right balance of knowledge and technical business skills

  • Insight into HSBC's competitive advantages in international markets and the financial services industry

Learning, development and support

We are serious about your learning and development and want you to get the most out of your internship with HSBC. That is why we combine hands-on experience with technical and behavioural skills training, and give you the opportunity to build strong networks with other interns and business leaders.

We’ll provide you with:

  • A buddy who you can share ideas with, and who will give you guidance and support
  • Regular business feedback on your performance
  • Opportunities to establish a solid network across Global Banking and Markets
  • Encouragement to take the initiative and be proactive
  • A work environment that values diversity, respect and a healthy work-life balance

The Summer Analyst Internship also acts as an extended assessment centre for students who may want to join the full-time Finance, Graduate Analyst Programme. Students who perform well throughout the course may be offered a placement once they have graduated from university.

During the Summer Analyst Internship, we want you to take the initiative, collaborate and feel like a part of our global teams. But most of all, we hope that the internship will give you invaluable experience that will inspire you to develop a lasting career with us.
