Programme overview

HSBC's Graduate Development Programme (GDP) is two years in length, and aims to provide accelerated training and practical experience to graduates who are interested in developing leadership skills, sales capabilities, and product knowledge for a career in the financial services industry.

These skills are developed by creating a customized rotation schedule which will see the graduate occupy several roles within a specific business area.

The GDP offers international exposure through an intensive leadership development course held overseas. Graduates also receive the support and guidance of a mentor who assists them in preparing customised development plans. These plans build on the capabilities required for the successful completion of the GDP. HSBC also supports the graduates in obtaining a professional designation.
