Job description

Commercial Banking Graduate Programme


Learn about commercial banking through a variety of roles such as advising customers on expanding their operations, analysing risks to provide safe lending options, or helping them to become more sustainable.


What you'll do


Commercial Banking connects entrepreneurial businesses to opportunities through our relationship managers and digital capabilities.


Over 18 months, you’ll rotate between Relationship Management teams that work directly with clients to connect them to opportunities, or with Credit Analyst Teams that analyse a company’s creditworthiness and provide lending solutions.


You might work in Global Trade teams offering services and finance for buyers and suppliers, or with our Product Management teams who develop new, digital services to improve the experience of our customers.


You could also work in various functions that provide support to our clients, such as our Risk teams who provide policies and processes to protect our clients and the bank.


Upon completion of the programme, you’ll be prepared to take advantage of the Commercial Bank’s local and international opportunities to progress your career, including the possibility to become one of our leaders of the future.


Looking for more detail about what you could be working on? Here are some of the activities our Graduates get involved with:

Working with Relationship Managers in meeting clients to understand their needs and support them to expand their operations

Supporting Relationship Managers in helping to pitch for business and build your own relationships with customers to better understand their needs

Helping clients use new technologies to do business with us

Building a knowledge of the products and services we offer our clients, including trade, payments, and transaction banking

Collaborating with product partners across our Commercial Bank and the HSBC Group to support our clients

Understanding the risks involved in Commercial Banking and how we mitigate for these, e.g. writing credit papers, exploring the macro environment, and putting covenants and securities in place

Learning how to incorporate Environmental, Social and Governance issues into our solutions for clients so they become more sustainable and support our joint efforts to transition to net-zero

Who you are


You’re a networker who builds trusted relationships, works well with different groups of people, and enjoys being part of a team.


When situations change you adapt quickly, take on new challenges and get it done!


You want to be where you can make a difference, whether that’s connecting a small business to opportunities that help them grow or advising a large international company on how to transition to net zero.


You’re curious, love to learn, and confident about bringing fresh perspectives to the table with the aim of finding better ways to do things.


What you'll learn


You’ll join our Accelerating Your Strengths Programme, which help you use and further develop your strengths while you’re with us.


The programme includes Personal Development Plans and 360 feedback so you can evaluate and measure your progress against an established framework and set goals to further improve yourself.


You’ll have plenty of opportunities for continuous learning and people to support you during your time with us so that you’re well prepared for your future. Read more about the support you’ll get.



You are a recent graduate or graduating before July 2023 and will have achieved a GPA of 2.8 or equivalent grade (as appears on your official University transcript or Degree certificate). You are a UAE National holding a Family Book. Be fluent in English and Arabic. Be legally permitted to work in the UAE. Please note that you can only make one application each recruitment cycle.
