The UK Work Experience Programme at HSBC UK offers a five-day shadowing experience to students in the later years of full-time secondary education, sixth form or college. The programme has been set up with the idea to help young people from different social-economic backgrounds gain an insight into a professional environment, as well as the banking industry.
HSBC have over 300 Work Experience opportunities nationwide, all of which will be available through June, July and August 2020. Specific details regarding each opportunity and the option to submit an application can be found here:
The application process will entail some online questions and, if successful, a telephone interview. To help prepare for this, we recommend checking out our Application Hints and Tips page here: http://www.hsbc.com/careers/application-hints-and-tips. A telephone interview will be arranged with the student during the office hours (Monday to Friday), HSBC UK would request the education providers/authorities to allow the student to attend this interview during school hours where possible.
Placements will be spread out across the UK and students can list their location preferences when applying, but only one application should be submitted and we cannot make any guarantees on placing a student in their preferred location as this is subject to availability.
Please note that the closing date for applications is 16th February 2020. However, places are limited and offered on a first come, first served basis. Please apply as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
