India Resident Management Trainee Programme

HSBC careers

The India Resident Management Trainee Programme is for postgraduates looking to develop a career in banking. The programme provides you opportunities to develop your strategic thinking and leadership skills and, on completion, you will have gained the knowledge and experience to progress into your first leadership role.

Who can apply?

To be considered for this programme, you will:

  • Be a postgraduate with PGDM or an MBA from a recognised business school in India

What to expect

Supported by experienced managers, colleagues and a wide network of diverse peers, you'll be encouraged to take on responsibility and bring new ideas to the table. You will be valued as an individual and for the contribution you make.

Over the two-year programme, you will embark on a banking foundation programme in either Commercial Banking or Retail Banking and Wealth Management. Your initial three months will involve four placements, including Branch, Operations, Risk and Product, to gain a wide variety of experience in your particular area. The remaining time will be spent in a live role to help you develop your functional expertise.

In addition, we have a specialist hiring programme for Global Banking and Markets (which includes Investment Banking) and Business Banking. In these areas, you would move directly into a full-time role.

Learning, development and support

Our programme will equip you with the skills and experience required to start a successful career with HSBC, as well as the opportunity to develop your professional network with colleagues around the world.

Over the course of the programme, we typically offer:

  • A wide range of training courses and workshops to develop your all-round skills
  • Regular networking opportunities with senior business leaders and management
  • The opportunity to join the Group Graduate Development Programme – an intensive period of skill and experience development in the UK
  • An opportunity to participate in the Kemri Conservation Project; this focuses on ecological restoration and community outreach, and is an ideal opportunity to demonstrate leadership and teamwork in action
