Upon completion of my undergraduate degree in International Relations and Politics I joined HSBC as Personal Banker, where I worked for two years on the front line serving clients and providing them with a range of services.

Working in the branch gave me a great foundational knowledge of the banking industry to which I was then promoted to a Risk Analyst position within HSBC’s commercial banking division. After a year in this role I was promoted to my current role as a CDD Compliance Manager which I’m currently enjoying.

Alongside my role I am also HSBC’s Communications Lead for Embrace UK which is an affinity group who focus on supporting the bank to celebrate diversity whilst providing personal development support to all colleagues, particularly those from a BAME background.

Enjoying my career at HSBC by appreciating first hand how supportive the organisation is has also led me to be a mentor for front line staff that also want to progress their careers.
