Traineeship - Finance October 2017

How will you change banking? Find out during the Finance traineeship

During the four-year ING International Talent Programme you create your own career within Finance. You learn more about your chosen discipline, the financial services sector and yourself. Do you want to have an impact on not only the financial lives of close to 9 million customers, but also the bank of the future? Discover how you can today.

Why ING?

At ING we know that the bank of tomorrow will be different from the bank of today. Our customers themselves are increasingly determining where and how they want to make use of our financial services. As a Finance trainee you work on the bank of tomorrow every day. We’re continually working to improve our services by making financial matters simpler and more transparent for our customers – and we hope that your ideas will help us to do so.

The programme

Above all, ‘changing banking’ means taking action. The financial world faces many challenges right now and so there’s plenty for you to get your teeth into as a Finance trainee. For example, you could be involved in simplifying complex models, analysing the past and forecasting the future situation for ING. Or you could provide advice relating to ING’s strategic position on the mortgage market. Over a three-year period you’re transformed into a strategic business partner so that you can advise ING’s senior management on important financial matters. But you’re given a serious amount of responsibility right from day one.

During your first project, which could be in Financial Accounting for example, you lay the first cornerstone for your future career. Your second project could be in the area of Management Accounting, in which case it’s your job to analyse the opportunities and costs of a product. After your first year, having gained a wealth of experience, you set to work in a more permanent position where you’ll further enhance your knowledge. Your personal preferences and interests form an important starting point for the roles you fulfil. And we should also point out that an adventure abroad is one of the options open to you, which is not only great fun but is also good for your personal and professional development.

What do we offer you?

Needless to say we offer you an excellent basic salary for this traineeship (starters position), a 13th month, paid annual leave, an impressive training package and a permanent contract. But above all we offer you the chance to shape your own ideas about banking in a receptive environment and hence to make banking even simpler and more transparent for our customers. Together with other (international) trainees you’ll participate in global events, which will enable you to quickly build up a large network.

As a trainee you receive guidance from your line manager, an HR coach and a Senior Manager in a mentor’s role. They will coach you, inspire you, introduce you to their network and share their knowledge and insights with you.

What do we ask of you?

·         You have a master degree from a university, preferably in Accountancy & Control, (Business) Economics, Finance, Business Administration or Management Studies.

·         You’re interested in the financial services sector, have an innovative take on banking and an unconditional drive to turn your ideas into reality.

·         As a student you have gained (international) experience through various extracurricular activities.
