2021 HSBC Work Experience opportunities - added 29 December

A taste of success – Work experience

We are reaching out to you to make you aware of our Work Experience placements for 2021 at HSBC. These opportunities are live and students can apply via our Work Experience page.

The 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 to gain an insight into a professional environment, as well as the banking industry.

We have over 500 Work Experience opportunities nationwide, all of which will be available through June, July and August 2021.

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 A telephone interview will be arranged with the student during the office hours (Monday to Friday), HSBC UK would request the schools/colleges allow the student to attend this interview during school hours where possible.

Our placements will be spread out across the UK and students can list their location preferences when applying, but please note that we cannot make any guarantees on placing a student in their preferred location as this is subject to availability.

The closing date for applications is the 21st February 2021, however we do offer these on a rolling basis and do reserve the right to close some adverts early if we fill all our spaces. Places are limited so we recommend students apply as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

Do you know a young person who was looking forward to a work experience placement in a design studio or a marketing agency this summer? Maybe you’re a student yourself who is missing out on that opportunity due to COVID-19 restrictions? We should have had two students from local schools with us over the next couple of weeks – but it was not to be this year.
