Your job

In your first few weeks at ABN AMRO you’ll follow the Corporate Banking Talent Programme together with your fellow 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 hands-on 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 spanning 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 fintech start-up, or at Business Management.

 As the job is ever-changing, you’re guaranteed to learn a lot in a short space of time. And all the knowledge that you gain will put you in a 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, energy, and 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 great 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.
