Setting up a bank account

We strongly suggest setting up a bank account before you start your assignment in order to ensure prompt payment for the work you do. It can be difficult to set up a bank account in the UK, so hopefully our advice will help!
We have a long standing relationship with HSBC. We can provide you with a letter of introduction to the bank. Accompanying the letter, HSBC require the following additional documentation:
  • Your passport
  • Six months worth of original bank statements from your bank in your home country, detailing your residential address
  • You will also need to provide to us your full UK address for your supporting letter
For information on the different types of accounts that HSBC offer, please visit www.hsbc.co.uk
