Learning and Development

At HSBC we recognise that the talent and diversity of our people is the foundation of our success, so we are committed to helping you develop your personal and professional skills in order to bring out your strengths.

Your manager will help you to identify potential opportunities and the capabilities you will need to be effective in your role. As part of the HSBC performance review process, they will work with you to set clear career development goals and provide feedback and support to assist you in achieving them. At the same time, you will be encouraged to take responsibility for driving your own personal development.

From the HSBC Business School, you will be able to access a comprehensive set of tools and learning materials based on your specific role and business area, as well as courses that help you develop communication, leadership and presentation skills.

You will be expected to complete some learning activities based on local regulatory requirements or the nature of your role, but you can also choose courses that are linked to your own interests or support your personal development.

You will have access to a mixture of formal and informal development opportunities, including on-the-job coaching and mentoring in addition to instructor-led workshops and e-learning.

From the outset, you will be able to develop your own professional networks with clients and colleagues around the world. You may also have the opportunity to develop your skills and gain experience in another country through one of our international assignments, which typically range in length from three months to three years.
