Job Description

Are you socially aware as well as curious and inquisitive? Do you have the desire to work in the largest dealing room in continental Europe? The Global Markets track of our Corporate Banking Talent Programme may be the perfect fit for you. Located at the Zuidas in Amsterdam, you’ll find the best deals for your clients and guide them in the complex world of financial products. We look forward to meeting you!

Your job

In your first 5 weeks at ABN AMRO you’ll follow the Corporate Banking Talent Programme together with your colleague graduates. During this period, you’ll get to know the corporate bank you’ll later be working for. Besides a broad introduction to ABN AMRO, you’ll participate in training in the fields of Accounting, Financial Analysis, Financial Modelling, Corporate Banking, Credit Risk and personal development. Trainings will be delivered by those at the very top of their field (and in collaboration with Nyenrode University) – including university lecturers, professional trainers and managers at ABN AMRO. Together, they will give you a solid basis for further development within the bank. At the same time, you will build an international network of graduates from several parts of the corporate bank. A great start to your Corporate Banking Talent Programme. Following the initial general training, you’ll start in the Global Markets rotation programme, during which you’ll work in different parts of the dealing room over the course of 18 months. You’ll also get the chance to branch out into one of the other departments within the corporate bank – thereby broadening your knowledge and network. It’s also possible to gain experience in one of our offices abroad. After 18 months, you’ll be ready for the starting point that best matches your skills and ambitions. From day one, you will work on your own assignment, which you’ll take full responsibility for. Possible rotation assignments include: 

  • Advising clients (Public and Private) on Debt and Equity capital markets transactions, such as IPOs, rights issues, and bond issuance (ECM & DCM);
  • Trading and/or advising clients on FX, Fixed Income, Equity or Derivatives products (Sales & Trading);
  • Analysing stock-listed companies and providing investment recommendations (Equity Research);
  • Writing research on sectors, commodities, currencies or the general macro economy (Group Economics Research);
  • Working on digital business initiatives within our strategy teams, our inhouse development teams, our fintech start-up Franx, or at Business Management.

As the job is ever-changing, you’re guaranteed to learn a lot in a short space of time. With the knowledge you gain, you’ll be in good shape for a great career at ABN AMRO.

Your working environment

Markets is the heart of Corporate & Institutional Banking and advises clients on the purchase and sale of (complex) financial products - for example, currency, stocks, bonds, commodities, fixed-income and structured products. Our clients vary from Private Banking to (Large) Corporate Clients, Public Sector and Financial Institutions. We carry out transactions for them from our dealing rooms in Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London and New York.Working at ABN AMRO means becoming even better at what you do. We understand clients, translate their ambitions into joint success and earn their trust. We want our clients to understand our products. That is why we sometimes even say 'no' if the risk attached to a product is too big for the client. Serving the client's interests is also a question of offering and communicating a transparent range of products. Banking is our business, the world is our challenge.

Your profile

You have the ability to understand complex things, have a keen eye for promising developments in the market and have business empathy. We don’t need to tell you that sharing knowledge and working as a team are crucially important on the trading floor. You have the ability to bring together colleagues with different specialisations so that you can optimally support the client. Reaching your goal satisfies you. You enjoy learning new things and feel comfortable in changing environments. Do you think you are a good fit? Do you have: 

  • A Master’s degree with above-average grades and no more than two years of work experience;
  • The ability to quickly understand;
  • Social and strong communication skills;
  • Relevant extracurricular activities and/or experience abroad;
  • Affinity with the financial world and interest in investment products;
  • (Internship) experience in the financial sector (is a plus);

What we offer

During the entire program, you'll receive guidance from a Pool Manager, assignment supervisors, trainers and a mentor. In addition, ABN AMRO offers an ongoing training curriculum that allows you to increase the knowledge of our business, deepen your understanding of financial markets and products, and further develop your personal skills. You'll also regularly get together with the Corporate Banking Talent Programme's training group.
