Commercial Management case study: Harry Jarman

by HSBC October 27th, 2011

Why did you choose to join HSBC?

HSBC was the logical choice for me. I’ve always had a passion for business and manufacturing, so had decided to pursue a career in commercial banking. HSBC’s strength in the Far East – a dominant region for manufacturing – meant that it was particularly well placed to offer me a rewarding career in this sector. Given the recent financial crisis, I also liked the fact that HSBC offered stability and security.

What’s your programme like?

I’m on the Commercial Management Trainee programme. The first placement on this programme saw me working in one of our commercial centres and liaising with SME clients. It was here that I gained a sound understanding of HSBC’s commercial banking proposition. For my second placement, I worked in a branch as a specialist in Business Banking. This proved to be a valuable learning experience. I developed both my client skills and commercial knowledge. Throughout the programme, I’ve had the opportunity to work with all kinds of businesses, which has been really vital to my learning and development.
