A traineeship at ING: allow your talent to flourish
ING’s Wholesale Banking traineeship prepares talented graduates for a future role in the dynamic area of corporate banking. Providing you know-how to make the most of your abilities, this track can lead you into a management role; perhaps you’ll become Vice President of Structured Finance, Corporate Finance or Financial Markets, positions which bring together various aspects of ING’s expertise to offer corporate customers structured deals. The experience and skill set you gain during your traineeship at ING come in useful when managing your own career, motivating your team and dealing with clients. This track represents a real kick-start to your career within Wholesale Banking.

Right from day one, you’ll be given a lot of responsibility and develop a wide range of knowledge and skills. You’ll gain valuable insights that will enable you to act decisively at all times and anticipate future developments. The Wholesale Banking traineeship requires very strong analytical skills. You’ll be working in a highly deal-driven environment, and that has a significant impact on how your team operates.

Help us drive change
We expect you to take the initiative, to be eager to learn and to take a proactive, entrepreneurial approach, not only at the start but for the entire duration of your traineeship. We expect you to develop, and share, your own vision. But above all we expect you to deliver tangible results. As a trainee at ING, you can – and should – make a real difference. Before you can offer customers integral solutions, you’ll need to analyse their core business. You need to be able to take a strategic approach, thrive on ambitious objectives and dare to assume responsibility in order to get things done. You’ll learn all this and much more.

As a trainee at ING you can have a direct impact on the financial future of our clients. Interested in the stories of our trainees? Follow them in their own traineeblogs.
