Winning the Asia-Pacific Global Trade and Receivables Finance Challenge three years running has made me proud to be part of such a dedicated team

I had always wanted to work overseas and experience a different culture. The Graduate Management Programme seemed to be the perfect fit. HSBC’s reputation and history of being a brilliant training ground for banking professionals was also encouraging.

I was lucky enough to travel overseas in 2010 as part of the HSBC Mobility Programme, which offers staff the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of transactional banking. I jumped at the chance to go on a short-term assignment to London. It was fascinating seeing how other people work and I built a strong network of contacts, which helps enormously when I’m working with customers who do business globally. I also happened to be in London at the time of the Royal Wedding – it was fun being part of all the excitement.

The attachment has helped me progress towards achieving my career goals. I started my HSBC career in the Banking Operations team, where I learned a lot about processing banking transactions and also managed a back office team. From there I moved to a front-line team as part of the Business Development team within Trade Finance. Operations and Business Development are obviously very different, so it was a steep learning curve.

There’s one thing that has really stood out in my career at HSBC. Winning the Asia-Pacific Global Trade and Receivables Finance Challenge three years running has made me proud to be part of such a dedicated team. To win three times was testimony to the hard work every member of my team put in.
