As one of the world’s most international banks, one of the key differentiators of our International Graduate Programme is the opportunities we offer across our footprint of Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Right from the start of our programmewe host our five week International Induction Programme in Shanghai to connect our global network of International Graduates with their peers from the 30+ countries we recruit for. Our International Graduate Programme is comprised of six business streams, aligned to each of our business banking areas. Each stream is focused on a unique part of the Bank, allowing you to select a business area based on your interests.
Our streamed programme is designed to help you develop specialist experience right from the start of your career. After completing your first year as part of the International Graduate Programme you might take a role in one of our local, regional or global teams. You might choose an amazing position in your home country, or, like 50% of our Graduates, your first role with the Bank may include an international move.
Choosing the right graduate opportunity can be tough, and the truth is there are no easy answers, but there are lots of great questions. Ask as many questions as possible to get details and clues to point you in the right direction and help you figure out what type of role, business and industry is right for you.
