You’ll have the support of a buddy and be able to develop your own network, which will prove invaluable in the future. There will be opportunities to take part in sustainability initiatives to develop new skills, and possibly become a future leader of HSBC, while adding value to the communities in which you work.  Perform well and you could secure a place on the firm's Commercial Banking Global Graduate Programme after graduation.
