We are seeking a dynamic, self-starting candidate to join HBSC’s US Public Affairs team as the Government Relations Associate.

At HSBC, our overall goal is to provide a competitive Total Reward Package, with an appropriate mix of fixed pay, and variable pay, as part of an employee’s overall total compensation and benefits.

Additionally, HSBC offers a wide range of competitive and flexible benefits designed to help you improve your health and well-being, finances, and lifestyle.


Employment eligibility to work with HSBC in the U.S. is required as the company will not pursue visa sponsorship for these positions.

As an HSBC employee, you will have access to tailored professional development opportunities to ensure you have the right skills for today and tomorrow.
