About HSBC


Throughout our history we have been where the growth is, connecting customers to opportunities. We enable businesses to thrive and economies to prosper, helping people to fulfill their hopes and dreams and realise their ambitions. 

HSBC was founded in Hong Kong on 3rd March 1865. Today, HSBC has around 3,900 offices in 67 countries and territories worldwide, and around 38 million customers bank with us and employ over 233,000 people in the world. 

HSBC was celebrated as 'World's Best Bank' in the Euromoney Awards for Excellence 2017.  We speak 144 different languages, and in 2016 donated $137 million to community investment programmes around the world. Plus, in 2016 HSBC employees volunteered 255,000 hours within work time. 

HSBC reported profits of $10.2 billion before tax in the first six months of 2017. We also paid $10.1 billion in shareholder dividends for 2016. 

HSBC seeks forward-thinking, driven and perceptive students and graduates who are open to different ideas and cultures, who enjoy being part of a team and have the ambition to become future leaders.

HSBC recognises that the talent and diversity of its people are the foundation of its success. It hires, develops and promotes employees based on merit and provides an open, supportive and inclusive working environment. This is an organisation where everyone can be themselves and achieve their potential.

 
Using our teacher resources
We’ve created some helpful teacher resources. These include a lesson plan to help you demystify a career in banking for your students. We’ve designed the resources with HSBC to support applications to their work experience programmes, giving you information on the company and tools to build a stand out cover letter.
