After a career spanning 20 years in the Royal Marines, Steven Lee is now a Delivery and Assurance Director at HSBC. He joined us to discuss his transition timeline and the range of recruitment opportunities available at HSBC ahead of the forthcoming recruitment day HSBC are hosting.
Since joining HSBC in 2014, Steven is now in his fourth role within the bank, and has broadened his scope and levels of responsibility. He also founded the HSBC Military Network which was set up in January 2016 with the aim of filling the gap for a significant number of veterans and reservists within the organisation who were missing a support network to touch base with.
Steven’s decision to leave the Services was fuelled by a desire for new challenges and a change of focus and environment as well as the appeal of domestic stability but he still wanted that professional contentment he had found in the Services. And how best to go about reaching for this outside of Service life?
His view is that it’s fundamental for military leavers to understand the transition process is not about landing ‘a’ role, it’s about landing ‘the right’ role…
Steven put his military honed planning to good use with the creation of a transition timeline offering key criteria he could follow before embarking on the all-important job seeking process. The transition sequence consists of three different phases.
