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.
In view of digitalisation 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. As a result, HR makes a crucial contribution to the achievement of ING’s strategic objectives.
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.
These could relate to areas of HR such as compensation & benefits, learning, talent acquisition, performance management or leadership.
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 in a receptive environment and one which helps to make banking even simpler and more transparent for our customers. Together with other (international) trainees you will participate in global events, which will enable you to quickly build up a large network. You also have the opportunity to do one of your projects abroad – because six months in the likes of Madrid, Frankfurt or Milan is not only really interesting but also good for your development.
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.
