What you can expect
Global Liquidity and Cash Management is part of our Global Banking business and is an exciting and dynamic environment, servicing the full range of HSBC clients from small local businesses to large corporates, other banks and governments spanning the globe. Here, you will have insight into how our colleagues work together to meet client needs; supporting them in optimising their cash flows, providing greater security, at a lower cost.

We will give you responsibility from day one, encouraging you to drive new internal initiatives, present to colleagues and clients, and work with our colleagues across the globe. Having a drive to become a key member of a global network could help you to become one of our leaders of tomorrow.
