Job description

Some career choices have more impact than others.

At HSBC we exist with the purpose of Opening up a World of Opportunity. We use our unique expertise, capabilities, breadth and perspectives to provide opportunities for our customers and colleagues through global connectivity. We bring together the people, ideas and capital that nurture progress and growth, helping to create a better world – for our customers, our people, our investors, our communities and the planet we all share.

As an HSBC employee in Australia, you’ll have access to tailored professional development opportunities, competitive pay, an embedded flexible working culture and a range of employee benefits. These include market-leading subsidised private health cover, enhanced parental pay and support when returning to work, subsidised banking products and services, bonus leave days and wellness programmes including discounted gym memberships.

As a Project Delivery Lead you will play a vital role in our international growth program, where the focus is on driving offshore acquisition particularly in key segments like professional migrants, international students, and international investors. The goal is to increase market share among these groups to meet our growth targets. While the primary focus is on offshore activity in regions like Hong Kong, China, India, and the UK, it's also critical to target "new to country" customers as offshore efforts don't always lead to pre-departure acquisition. The role requires collaboration with multiple stakeholders locally and globally to execute on the international growth strategy. 

Please note this is a fixed term contract role for 9 months.

Overall role summary:

•Develop a comprehensive operating model to support customer growth through partnerships
•Create a Partnership Performance dashboard to track key performance indicators, risks, and issues, allowing for effective monthly reporting
•Assist in evaluating and onboarding new partners to support international customer growth, considering factors like opportunity size and target markets

•Identify and resolve risks/issues/dependencies during the project lifecycle, escalating when necessary to ensure project success
•Build and maintain positive relationships with stakeholders, providing regular updates on project status, risks, and issues
•Drive a culture of achievement by removing barriers to project success and maintaining project change control.
