Why work for HSBC in the UK?
HSBC employs around 47,000 people in the UK, including 8,500 in the bank’s global headquarters in Canary Wharf in London. We serve our customers through more than 1,000 branches nationwide, 24-hour call centres and offices in other key cities.
With the creation of a new ring-fenced bank, HSBC UK, and the opening of its head office in Birmingham, we will be recruiting for over 1000 roles to be located at the new location. This will create opportunities for people to join us in Birmingham and be part of the new bank across a number of business areas. We are hiring now with our main recruitment programme starting in 2016.
