Allow your talent to flourish and enjoy the best experience in our Risk traineeship.
Our Risk traineeship enables you to steer your career in a direction that suits your talent and passion. The 2 year programme allows you to discover yourself through a wide selection of (online) professional and personal skills trainings.
Make an impact as a trainee
Risk management is essential to safeguard ING’s future. The Risk traineeship at ING has a broad scope and covers the management of credit risk, market risk, operational risk, model risk and compliance risk.
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 year
Your HR trainee manager will assist you in choosing your first rotation based on your own interest and learning goals. This rotation lasts approximately six months.
For example, you can experiment with big data in a predictive risk model or help to set up internal processes so as to minimise the risk of fraud.
During your first rotation you also work together with fellow trainees from other tracks on a group assignment to tackle a challenge that is relevant to our business. This gives you the opportunity to expand your network within ING and practice your stakeholder management skills.
With these new experiences and contacts, you are in charge to arrange your second rotation. Now it comes down to addressing your network and taking the initiative. We encourage it to gain international experience during this six-month period,( if possible with local Covid-19 restrictions) which is not only great fun but is also good for your personal and professional development.
Your second year
After two rotations, you now have a better understanding of which direction you would like to go and are ready to choose your third rotation. Are you broadening your knowledge within your track, or would you like to explore a business area within another track?
During your third rotation you’ll start networking for your fixed position. This permanent role lets you go deeper into the field of Risk right from the start. You expand your knowledge and hone your skills, while working on your further development as e.g. a Junior Market Risk Manager or a Quantitative Analyst.
Training and Coaching
As a trainee there will be many opportunities to discover and develop yourself. Your HR trainee manager coaches you during your three rotations. For extra guidance you can reach out to your line manager or ask a senior manager to mentor you. During the second year of your traineeship you’ll also benefit from a few personal sessions with an external coach.
During your traineeship, you participate in two Global Trainee events focused on professional and personal skills together with all ING’s trainees – across all tracks – from around the world. On top of this, throughout the year various virtual trainee days are organized where you’ll learn about ING and work on your professional skills.
