Some careers have more impact than others.
We're looking for progressive minds who are driven, perceptive and forward-thinking, who are open to different ideas and cultures, who can connect with our customers and who will work with courageous integrity every day.
As an HSBC employee in Australia, you will have access to tailored professional development opportunities and a competitive pay and benefits package. This includes market leading subsidised private health cover, enhanced parental pay/benefits and support when you return to work, wellness days and wellbeing programs as well as a highly flexible workplace culture.
Offering a diverse range of legal skills and jurisdictional experience across the full range of countries and territories in which our businesses operate, HSBC Legal plays an important role in the day-to-day and long-term planning activities of all of our businesses around the world. Responsible for providing comprehensive legal advice to senior management and across the HSBC Group, the team advises on and is actively involved in all business and operational strategies and initiatives, from legislative and regulatory matters to the setting of policies and procedures for guarding against and reporting on legal risk and reputational management issues.
We are now inviting qualified individuals to join HSBC Australia in the role of Legal Counsel.
Your main responsibilities will include:

  • Providing legal advice and guidance to our Commercial Banking (CMB) and Global Banking and Markets (GBM) businesses. This will involve providing first class legal support to the transactional/coverage teams within each of these business lines, including syndicated, club and bilateral lending matters across a variety of sectors (including leveraged/acquisition finance, infrastructure finance/PPPs, property finance, general corporate finance, structured finance).
  • Acting as a trusted adviser to GBM and CMB by ensuring that commercially sensitive, pragmatic and practical legal support and advice is provided in a cost-effective manner.
  • Supporting the Senior Legal Counsel, Associate General Counsel and the General Counsel in the management of legal risk arising within the CMB and GBM businesses, including ensuring that any risk arising from legal issues are managed and mitigated promptly, with remedial action initiated in line with the materiality of the risk or issue.
  • Proactively and promptly advising and engaging the businesses and senior management of material legal issues or developments and their implications.
We expect the successful applicant will be able to demonstrate the following:
  • An Australian qualified lawyer with 3-6 years of post-qualification experience.
  • Top tier law firm experience.
  • In-house experience with a leading financial institution would be an advantage but not essential.
  • Strong banking and finance transactional experience essential.
  • Derivatives experience would be an advantage but not essential.
  • Flexibility and willingness to work on a variety of matters, from complex to routine matters (independently and with appropriate support as required).
  • Ability to thrive in a fast paced and flexible culture requiring management of competing priorities under deadline pressure.
  • Excellent communication and inter-personal skills, with the ability to build credibility with business teams and other stakeholders.
  • Team player who works collaboratively and in an inclusive manner.
