Full Time

Whether it is identifying major investment themes, responding to breaking news, or offering our thoughts on specific opportunities, our analysts aim to be topical, relevant and insightful. In an increasingly globalised environment we aim to produce multi-asset reports around key political and economic developments and act as a bridge between the developed and emerging markets.

We have been expanding what we do, most recently building out our coverage of China A share equity research, expanding our EM and UK product offerings, and developing our Environmental, Social and Governance framework.

What we need

We’re looking for the future leaders of Global Research — and this starts with our 13 month placement. You will need to be forward-thinking, driven and perceptive, open to different ideas and cultures and enjoy being part of a team.

What to expect

You’ll have a detailed induction, on the job training and you’ll learn about our macro, sector and company-scaled research and our strength in emerging markets and climate change. You’ll be learning from specialised research analysts and economists, gaining a detailed insight into HSBC’s strengths in the financial services industry.

You’ll gain hands-on experience, which will build your technical knowledge of investment banking and the role of Global Research. You’ll also be developing your behavioural, analytical, interpersonal and presentation skills. You’ll also be set measurable objectives and receive structured feedback throughout the placement.

A placement at HSBC offers you the chance to call on a variety of people for support. Your manager will be able to give you guidance on your career options. You’ll be assigned a mentor who will help you to get the most out of the experience, and a buddy to share ideas with and go to for advice.

There will be regular business and social events to attend so you can build a network of global contacts, which will prove invaluable to you in the future. You can also take part in sustainability initiatives, which may help you to become a future leader of HSBC, while adding value to the communities in which we work.

We offer a market-competitive pay and benefits package according to your location.
