This internship is for penultimate-year Bachelor’s or Master’s degree students.

What to expect

You’ll work alongside an expert team that provides wealth management advice and tailored investment solutions to help our high-net-worth clients and their families achieve their financial goals. As well as seeing how we build relationships with our clients, you’ll learn all about our comprehensive investment offering, which covers all asset classes. We work in close partnership with Commercial Banking and our other global businesses, and you’ll see how we aim to provide the best of HSBC to our high-net-worth clients.

Wherever you join us, we will support, guide and develop you, while our leaders will help you to be the best you can be, reflecting your interests and capabilities.

Learning, development and support

We’re looking for the future leaders of Global Private Banking. Forward-thinking, driven, perceptive students who enjoy being part of a team and are excited by new ideas. People who are dependable and open to different cultures.

We’ll take your learning and development seriously so you get the most out of your internship. Your time with us will begin with a one-week induction, which will include technical training tailored to Global Private Banking. You can then expect a mix of practical, hands-on experience and technical and behavioural skills training, along with exposure to a range of banking solutions. This will provide you with the right balance of knowledge and enable you to help meet our clients’ needs.

At the beginning of your internship, measurable objectives will be set by your line manager, who will manage your performance as well as offering you support and advice. You’ll be assigned a dedicated buddy who you can share ideas with and who will give you guidance. There will be plenty of opportunities to establish a solid network across Global Private Banking, which will stand you in good stead for the future. Taking part in our sustainability initiatives will also help you to develop new skills and become a future leader of HSBC, while adding value to the communities in which we work.
