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.

In view of digitalization of the bank, changing customer needs and new competitors, ING operates in a rapidly evolving market. This means that the company is in a continual state of flux and our employees are playing an increasingly central role.

Your first rotation

As an HR trainee you work on important HR projects that have a real impact on the company and which expose you to the very latest developments within the HR discipline. You start your traineeship with a rotation to dive into HR fundamentals, such as payroll, employer branding and our collective labour agreement.

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.
