HSBC have an on-going commitment to support flexible working, however the flexibility offered may differ by the type of role and location. In 2021, they announced a permanent move to flexible working, and decided to radically cut back on its office space and switch to having a more permanent agile workforce. The move – a direct response to the rise in home working brought about by the Covid-19, saw the bank reduce its long-term office space needs by 40% globally.  

What we love about HSBC: 

💡HSBC's approach to flexible working for its Retailing Banking Contact Centre staff.   

💡HSBC’s clear commitment to Inclusive working is refreshing to see.    

What’s worth checking about HSBC:    

💡Part-time options are limited. Currently only 19 part time vacancies out of 249 (all of which are customer service roles) 

💡HSBC was one of the earlier banks to encourage workers back to office-based working and doesn’t clearly articulate it’s remote working policies or office value proposition.  

💡Policies appear to differ significantly between the investment and retail banking arms as well as by role levels.
