This is your time. Explore every possibility and grow.

We‘re looking for individuals from around the world who are studying a PhD, Advanced Masters or regional equivalent.

On our competitively paid two-year Associate Programme, you’ll experience life in our technical and quantitative analytics roles within the world of Markets & Securities Services, adding your voice and ideas to the business.

What you can expect

On our Associate Programme you will be challenged, relied on and supported every step of the way. There is no requirement for prior experience in finance and your programme will include the necessary training to start your career in quantitative finance. You will also take part in HSBC’s global induction to help you transition into the organisation. Our global network gives you the advantage of being able to connect with senior leaders, industry professionals and peers from all over the world, across multiple divisions. They are on hand to give you advice and support your learning and development.

What you will do

Our Quantitative Finance Associates will work on tasks and projects that add value to our Markets & Securities Services business across Trading, Sales, Structuring and Quantitative teams. You will further develop your quantitative, analytical and problem solving skills in various application fields. This could be derivatives modelling, financial products engineering, credit analysis, algorithmic trading or data science and machine learning. You’ll work with senior leaders and colleagues to bring solutions to serve our clients and will take part in a range of activities, projects and networking opportunities.

Who does this suit?

We are looking for dedicated, team-spirited and motivated people who are:

  • Committed researchers. We run a business where markets and client needs are constantly changing. You should always be curious; questioning ideas and showing a keen interest in learning about our methods
  • Agile workers. You’ll work in a fast-paced environment. You’ll maintain momentum by promoting agile working and ensuring we constantly deliver sound business solutions for our clients
  • Analytical thinkers. You’ll need a good eye for detail, a creative mind for analysing trends, and the courage to adopt new analytical methods
  • Team players. At HSBC, we do things together so that we can deliver the best solutions for our clients. That means being dedicated and able to collaborate: to listen to, as well as voice ideas and opinions that could develop our offering to clients

What can this lead to?

Following the Associate Programme, you could go into a specialist role that suits your personality and skills, working alongside like-minded colleagues who share a passion for backing up client decisions with solid analysis.
