The world of banking is changing faster than ever, enjoy the best experience in our Retail Banking traineeship
During our programme you create your own career within Retail Banking. You learn more about your chosen discipline and the financial services sector. Our trainee programme also allows you to discover yourself through a wide selection of (online) professional and personal skills trainings.
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 year
ING takes a customer-centric approach, which is why we are looking for trainees with a real passion for customers. Your trainee manager will assist you in choosing your first rotation which lasts approximately six months.
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).
As a trainee you will also receive guidance from your line 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.
You are in charge of your second assignment. Now it comes down to addressing your network and taking the initiative. We encourage it to gain international experience during this six-month period, which is not only great fun but is also good for your personal and professional development, if possible with local Covid-19 restrictions.
Besides being given the opportunity to put your talent to good use where it really matters, you’ll participate in a global training event with all trainees from your year, which will also enable you to quickly build up a large network.
