  • Have the desire and commitment to make a difference
  • Want to work for HSBC

We welcome applicants from all career and educational backgrounds; however in an environment as diverse as ours, professional knowledge, as well as fluency in Armenian, English and Russian are important.

Please remember that your application is our first contact with you. Getting your application right is more important than getting it in first, so follow the steps below to make sure yours is as good as it can be.

What is the role about?

Research the role you are applying for. Review the role profile carefully, the job responsibilities and required qualifications needed for high-level performance.

Assess your skills

Review your current skills and experience against the role profile to gain an accurate view of your strengths and possible areas for development.

Is this role for me?

Give genuine thought as to whether this is the right role, making sure it fits with your skills, interest and personal motivation in the short and longer term. Try to avoid simply applying for a role to escape the one you are in. You, as well as the recruiting manager, need to know there is a genuine interest and fit.

Application form

If you have gone through the steps above and still feel this is the right role for you, you will need to complete an HSBC Application Form carefully filling in all the required fields.

Language

Complete all the sections in English where there is a requirement to do so, otherwise your application will not be processed.

Your professional profile

Try to give as much information as possible about yourself (your skills, motivation, experience, long and short-term ambitions, interests, benefits, etc.). Make sure your answers are relevant. Many people fall down at this stage because they do not answer the question(s) asked, or do not give enough information.

Substantiate your willingness to work with us

Some of our questions ask you to describe what would be your contribution to HSBC Bank Armenia and what would be the benefits of working at HSBC for yourself. There are points allocated for each of these answers. Do not concentrate on one and ignore the others.

Clear and brief

Keep your answers informative but concise. We have included a word count for some of the responses. Your answer should be close to, but not more than the word count quoted. Please clearly state the roles you are interested in.

Internship programme

At HSBC we offer internship programmes to suit your career needs and to apply to at a certain stage of your university education. We recognise that having meaningful work experience will greatly increase your employment prospects, which is why our internship scheme is designed to give you as much exposure as possible to our business, operations and customers through not only learning but completing daily tasks and various projects.

  • Assist you to obtain required practical experience and to complete your qualifications
  • Enable HR to compile a comprehensive database of prospective employees for future recruitment purposes. If you are successful you will be included in our resourcing reserve pot, hence getting the first priority in external hiring based on your skills and practical knowledge obtained during the internship

This will be an excellent chance for you to get a view of the HSBC Group and HSBC Armenia, and in particular the values and business principles, code of conduct and core policies.

To make your internship worthwhile and mutually beneficial you will have the chance to get on-the-job training. You will get experience in our key business areas and enhance your knowledge of the financial services industry. At the same time, we will give you feedback on your performance to further enhance your skills and qualifications.
