The UK Work Experience programme is aimed at students looking to get a realistic taste of what life is truly like at a leading global Bank. Consisting of a blend of experiences, both virtual and physical, students can expect to develop hands-on, practical experience in a specific business area, build their knowledge of banking and financial services, and explore the potential future careers available at HSBC.
Over the course of a week-long placement hosted across June/July or August in 2021*, students can expect to get to know HSBC – our values, our history and exactly what we do – and gain an insight into actual jobs that you could be doing if you came to work for us full time. There will be an opportunity to work on a live project and share your ideas with your manager.

How to apply
Applications are now open and will close on 21 February 2021. After the closing date, we will not accept any further applications. Due to limited vacancies we would encourage to submit an application as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
The recruitment process will include completing an online application with eligibility questions, a short online assessment and final stage telephone interview. We will then advise all applicants in March 2021 on the outcome.
You should submit only one application for a location that is most convenient for you to travel to and from.
We recruit on a rolling basis, meaning that the telephone interviews will start when the first applications are submitted.
What you will need
We welcome applications from any subject area or any background, if you are considering a career in financial services after school or university this is a great opportunity for you to get an insight into the banking industry.
Where are the placement locations?
New for 2021, this programme will also include an all virtual employability and soft skill development programme, geared to give students the noncognitive capital required to invest in their own future.
