|“Like most of the HSBC graduates I’ve met, I had no clue what I wanted to do once I graduated. Over a year later, I still don’t! But after completing a Summer Internship with HSBC in the summer of my penultimate year, I knew that HSBC was somewhere I was going to enjoy working. The personal/social side of the company is not what I expected from a traditional bank. One of the best parts about the scheme is getting the chance to work in 4 different roles. My first two placements gave me the opportunity to work in Manchester and Birmingham, and now currently I’m down in London. If working abroad is something you’re keen to do at some point in your career, you won’t find many better companies to give you that opportunity than HSBC, so get applying!”

|“I studied Sociology with a Year Abroad – a subject that doesn’t traditionally lead to banking. Before my final year at Warwick, I hadn’t spent much time thinking about my future career – I was too busy in Smack or POP! However, I knew I wanted to work for a global brand, move around the country and work various departments; so the HSBC RBWM Scheme has been perfect. I’m originally from West Sussex and I’ve been in St Albans for my first placement (of which we have 4) – I’m looking forward to finding out where I’ll be next! My advice would be to get involved in the things that you’re passionate about, don’t be afraid to break the mould and do what is right for you.”

Here’s a quick introduction from Akshay Shah, HSBC’s Graduate Recruitment representative for Warwick:
“Hello WUAXC! For those who I’ve not had the pleasure of meeting yet, my name is Akshay (but feel free to call me Ash), and I graduated from Warwick Uni myself only a year ago in 2016, having studied Maths & Business. I’ve taken on a role as the HSBC Graduate Recruitment rep for Warwick this year.
I was in your position not too long ago, trying to balance job applications and uni work deadlines all whilst maintaining the POP! attendance streak, and so would love to offer my support if you’re even slightly interested in our internship/graduate schemes, or even just with general careers advice.
I’ll be on campus over the next few weeks for various events, found on the WUAXC website, but feel free to drop me an email or give me a call at anytime!”
