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. As a Retail Banking trainee, your work has a direct impact on a great number of our clients. For example, you can help to improve the transparency of our mortgages. Would you like to work as an associate, a commercial role with a lot of client interaction? That is definitely possible. Or you take responsibility for organising a major event for Private Banking customers. Working in the Social Media Team, to increase the impact of our online ING Community is also an option.
Your first rotation
ING takes a customer-centric approach, which is why we are looking for trainees with a real passion for customers. Based on your own interests, you can indicate your preferences for your first rotation so that we can work together to find a suitable starting role for you such as Customer Journey Expert, Product Owner, Associate or Lending Specialist (servicing Mid Corporate clients).
Needless to say we offer you an excellent base 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 will participate in annual global events, which will enable you to quickly build up a large network.
As a trainee you receive guidance from your line manager and your Key Potential Expert (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.
