International Talent Program - Track Risk
Proud history, sure. But at ING we’re always more interested in what comes next. Looking at everything we do and asking: how do we make this better? How can we get it done faster? How can it be done more simply? It takes relentless curiosity, a spirit of open collaboration and a culture where new ideas are valued ahead of old conventions.
The world of banking is changing faster than ever, enjoy the best international experience in our Risk Management traineeship
During our four year Programme you create your own career within Risk. You learn more about your chosen discipline and the financial services sector. Our International Talent programme also allows you to discover yourself through a wide selection of trainings tailored to your needs.
Make an impact as a trainee
At ING we are always broadening our horizons. Our people have a forward-thinking mentality, a strong can-do spirit and enjoy working in an agile environment. Do you want to have an impact on not only the financial lives of close to 8 million customers but also on the bank of the future? Why wait, discover how today.
Above all, ‘change banking’ means taking action. The financial world is currently facing many changes and as a Risk Management trainee you play an important role in tackling them. The findings from the analysis you perform, mainly on behalf of Retail and Wholesale Banking, will influence our company results and the risks we are prepared to take. Therefore, you need to have a strong sense of self-belief and stand behind your decisions.
Your first rotation
In your 18 months, you set to work on projects related to Credit & Trading Risk, Balance Sheet Risk, Risk Services, Compliance, Operation Risk Management or Regulatory. You are handed a lot of responsibility within your role right from day one. You are completely free to decide on your second rotation for yourself; you could even choose to do it abroad if you wish.
Our Risk trainee
- Has a master degree from a university, preferably in econometrics, economics, law or (quantitative) finance (and degrees in mathematics, engineering and physics will also be considered).
- Has an interest in financial services, an innovative take on banking and an unconditional drive to turn your ideas into reality.
- Has gained (international) experience through various extracurricular activities.
- Is enthusiastic and considers the interests of our customers and colleagues.
Needless to say we offer you a good base salary for this traineeship (starters position), a 13th month, paid annual leave, an impressive training package (e.g. your CFA) and a permanent contract. At ING, you’re given the chance to put your talent to good use where it really matters: at the heart of the bank. Your analysis and recommendations will lead to a carefully considered risk profile that enables the bank to make a healthy profit but above all ensures the safety of our customers’ money, both now and in the future. Together with other (international) trainees you will participate in global events, which will enable you to quickly build up a large network. You can also embark on an international adventure, which is not only great fun but is also good for your personal and professional development.
As a trainee you receive guidance from your line manager and your Early career talent manager (trainee manager). If you are looking for additional guidance you can ask a Senior Manager to mentor you. They will coach you, inspire you, introduce you to their network and share their knowledge and insights with you.
