Do you like looking for solutions and are interested in what is going on in the world? And would you like to contribute to sustainability? Then the Personal & Business Banking Traineeship is the place for you. You'll hit the ground running from day one with lots of responsibility!
As a trainee within the Personal & Business Banking traineeship, you will work in one of the departments within ABN AMRO's Personal & Business bank - the bank where we provide services to consumers and business customers. Which department suits you best? We'd love to find out together! It could be the department where we serve our business customers or retail customers, or maybe a department where we work on product development or its implementation. You will follow the traineeship together with trainees from the Wealth Management traineeship, which is ABN AMRO's private bank. Meaning a stint at Wealth Management could be a possibility too.
During the 18-month traineeship, you will discover what a career at ABN AMRO can offer you and contribute to building the bank of the future. This is how we train you for your first job and, using the different elements in the traineeship, give you the space to develop a solid foundation for your future career. Of course, you will also actively work on increasing your professional knowledge. In addition, we offer you the unique opportunity to follow The School of Life's 'Boost Your Growth' programme, where you will work on developing your personal leadership. Using project sprints with corresponding assignments, you will gain insight into how you are as a professional. This will allow you to discover how your talent is best showcased. You will also get many extras as a trainee, such as master classes, networking events, (outdoor) activities and sustainability workshops. The Talent Programme will furthermore provide you with plenty of opportunities to take a peek at other departments. Please keep in mind that the position you apply for is also the position you will graduate from upon completion of the traineeship.
In Personal & Business banking, you can follow the traineeship at different departments. Below is a brief description of these various directions.
Business Clients & Ecosystems
Business Clients & Ecosystems helps business clients in the SME (small and medium-sized enterprise) segment. This department advises clients on non-complex products and services, such as lending, payment solutions, savings and supports them with day-to-day banking matters.
Affluent Clients is responsible for helping high-income retail clients. Within this segment, we proactively help our clients with their financial issues, future planning and wealth accumulation. Examples of work in this department include advising clients on income and assets, mortgages and private loans.
Consumer Clients serves our bank's largest group of clients: from minors to seniors and from students to expats. All are at different stages of life with different wants and needs. The Client Advisors in this department know how to empathise with specific client situations like no other. This is how we deliver on our client promise of ‘having every contact moment be of value’, and remain a personal bank in the digital age.
Transaction Banking has end-to-end responsibility for all Transaction Banking products across ABN AMRO. For example, a Transaction Banking Expert provides product and market expertise in cash management, liquidity management and trade finance. All with the aim of creating and maintaining sustainable client relationships and revenues.
Business Implementation's mission is to use knowledge to achieve impactful transformation in Change, Lean and Implementation management. In doing so, we are accelerating the transition to a personal bank in the digital age. Examples of work in this department include implementing strategic changes, leading projects and advising management, enabling them to set the right priorities.
The success of our organisation depends on the quality of our people and the ideas that they have. Which is why diversity is extremely important to our organisation. At ABN AMRO, we make sure everyone can develop their qualities, so that every colleague feels engaged and valued. It's an interplay of cultures, knowledge, fields of study and interests that creates surprising insights and innovative solutions. And you can contribute to this as well.
