Transformation Services

Our Transformation Services team partners with all areas of Global Banking and Markets (Global Banking, Global Markets, HSBC Securities Services, and Global Liquidity and Cash Management). We help them to deliver on their strategy and respond to industry trends such as developments in fintech as well as any regulatory issues.

We connect strategy to action; delivering value through deep institutional knowledge, intelligent design and delivery of end-to-end solutions. We leverage digital capabilities and implement innovative technologies, supported by an on-demand resource model.

What you will do

Our 10-week Summer Internship takes place between June and August 2020 and offers penultimate-year degree students and final-year bachelor’s, master’s and postgraduate students experience of Transformation Services, the organisation tasked with supporting Global Banking and Markets to change.

This is with a view to developing a successful international career in any number of transformational capabilities, ranging from business analysis, design and business architecture, business process re-engineering to programme management. You will need to be forward-thinking, analytical, courageous, driven and perceptive, open to different ideas and cultures and enjoy being part of a team.

Who does this suit?

As well as the individual skills and experience you bring, you will be encouraged to look for ways to make a real difference for our clients.
We are looking for dedicated, collaborative and motivated people who are:

  • Agile workers. You will work in a fast-paced environment where everything evolves quickly. You’ll maintain momentum by promoting agile working and ensuring we constantly deliver for our clients
  • Analytical thinkers. You’ll need a good eye for detail, a creative mind for analysing trends, and the courage to adopt new analytical methods
  • Team players. We collaborate by listening to new ideas, as well as voicing our own, in order to deliver and develop the best service for our clients
  • Keen problem solvers. You are able to see the wood for the trees, synthesise new information and make sensible assumptions to enable a path forward
  • Map makers not map readers. You can recognise where new and emerging techniques may be applicable to traditional industries

What can this lead to?

If your internship is successful, you will have the opportunity to join our Graduate Programme from July 2021.
