Life at HSBC

Opening opportunities

We want everyone to be at their best, so we’re promoting flexibility, collaboration, learning and wellbeing. We encourage curiosity and creativity, to seek out better ways to solve problems and make a positive impact on our customers’ experience.

Our hybrid working approach
Fact: Over 70 per cent of our employees can work remotely and benefit from the flexibility of hybrid working.

We’re looking for ambitious people who want to learn, grow and innovate to create a better shared future.

Our global scale, which covers 64 countries and territories, brings unique opportunities across the world for our people. Our purpose – Opening up a world of opportunity – guides us in all we do and our values influence the way we work together and the choices we make.

We’ve embraced hybrid working across our teams, providing greater choice between home and office working. There is also more flexibility around how and when work gets done.

One size doesn’t fit all and hybrid working has many benefits including improved well-being for employees, a more inclusive work environment and a reduction in our carbon footprint.
