  • Compliance

    Given the complexities of today’s regulatory landscape, Compliance is a critical function in the financial services industry.  Compliance professionals guide the business through the evolving world of regulations and establish risk-mitigating controls to protect the bank’s reputation.

    As a support function that oversees the business, Compliance operates as one team to drive the right customer outcomes and protect the integrity of the bank through constant innovation.  You will have a chance to not only work across departments, but also collaborate with colleagues around the globe.  Together, you will help to build and maintain a robust compliance framework that reinforces the culture of helping people achieve their ambitions, in the right way, and ultimately contributes to the health of the financial industry.

  • Finance

    The better we understand the numbers, the better our decisions – and our performance – will be. Finance is where both analytical and control focused people really add value.

    Comprised of approximately 3,000 colleagues across our key global offices, Finance oversees financial control, reporting and forecasting as well as product control. It also monitors budgets and gives us accurate, high quality management and financial information. But the teams aren’t just experts at interpreting figures. They're also integral business partners who help drive strategy and keep us on track. Whichever team you work in, you’ll develop the technical and business know-how to influence decisions that affect a host of different products and initiatives.

  • Human Resources

    When our people flourish, so do we. HR makes sure all our 130,000 employees grow, develop and get the most from their careers.

     We know a positive working environment inspires individuals and creates future leaders. Along with our senior managers, HR builds a culture that’s engaging, collaborative and empowering. Whether you're recruiting top talent, developing training programs that deliver the right skills at the right time, promoting an inclusive culture, setting HR policies and strategy or making sure our rewards are fair and competitive, you'll be pivotal to our performance.

  • Internal Audit

    Internal Audit is an independent control function that’s critical to our business right around the world. You’ll be joining a global team of around 650 people who undertake work that helps change our business for the better.

    Our reputation across financial services sets us out as a market leader, known for our innovative thinking, our vision and our commitment to developing our people. We want you to help us maintain that approach, driving change across the bank. At the same time, our global management team will help you drive your career ambitions.

  • Market Risk

    Market Risk addresses the risk of financial loss resulting from adverse changes in market prices. This is the team that helps us protect our performance and reputation by identifying, assessing and minimizing risk across our business. Our risk professionals analyze the impending risk and control exposure to market risk given our risk profile. 

    Whether you’re addressing the implications of an economic downturn or a stress scenario, or giving our leaders the advice they need to make informed decisions, you’ll gain both technical and soft skills and make a profound impact across the business.

  • Quantitative Analytics

    Our industry-leading QA team develops quantitative models and provides quantitative solutions to front office trading desks, and the Risk, Finance and Treasury functions.  

    QA offers an invigorating and enlightening working environment. Here you’ll work with top quantitative talent to deliver cutting-edge solutions on derivative pricing, risk management, capital utilization, strategic technological advancements and more. If you have strong mathematical, analytical, and/or programming skills, and enjoy real-world problem solving, the QA team is a perfect place to make the most of your skills and build a rewarding career.
