Starting today, 12 local universities and tertiary institutions will be invited to nominate full-time undergraduate students who aspire to work or study in the GBA. Promising candidates who submit their long-range career development plan will be shortlisted and invited for an interview with HSBC senior executives and employee representatives in May 2021. In June 2021, the awardees will be notified and granted HKD80,000 each. HSBC plans to sponsor up to 100 students over the next three academic years.
In addition to the funding, awardees will gain invaluable access to mentorship opportunities with HSBC executives, practical career and business advice from financial leaders who work in the GBA and an opportunity to expand their social and professional network.
HSBC also aims to hire future graduates who are interested in attaining work experience in the GBA under the Hong Kong SAR’s Greater Bay Area Youth Employment Scheme.
HSBC is the largest foreign bank in the GBA with a presence in all 21 prefecture level cities in Guangdong, with a dominant position in Hong Kong and an unrivalled international footprint.
