Want to work in the financial heart of the bank? Get to know our clients, products, and the dynamic of the biggest dealing room in continental Europe.
Do you have strong analytical skills, a nose for new business opportunities, and the desire to get down to business in the biggest dealing room in continental Europe? Then the Capital Markets Solutions (CMS) track of our Corporate Banking Graduate Programme may be the perfect fit for you. From the Zuidas in Amsterdam, you’ll guide clients in the most complex financial transactions, and you’ll look out for their interests by finding the best deals for each of them. Tell us your story. We are curious! If you're already good, we'll make you even better. That's a promise. So seize this opportunity to develop into the professional you aspire to be.
What is the job about?
In your first few weeks at ABN AMRO, you’ll follow the Corporate Banking Graduate Programme together with your fellow graduates, during which time 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 – 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 International Clients & Capital Markets Solutions. A great start to your Corporate Banking Graduate Programme.
Following the initial general training, you’ll start in the Capital Markets Solutions rotation programme, in which you’ll get to know as many different parts of the dealing room as possible over the course of twelve 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. After twelve months, you’ll be ready for the starting point that best matches your skills and ambitions. It’s also possible to gain experience in one of our offices abroad.
It sounds like a cliché, but every day is different in ABN AMRO’s dealing room. Because the job is ever-changing, you’re guaranteed to learn a lot in a short space of time. From day one, you’ll work on your own assignment, which you’ll take full responsibility for. For instance, you could be working on a new management information dashboard for e-commerce; you could be developing a new pricing policy for trading; or you may be involved in “business as usual” for a specific portfolio. After one year, you’ll specialise in either the Sales team or the Trading team of CMS, and you’ll get your own portfolio straight off the bat. And all the knowledge that you gain will stand you in good stead for a great career at ABN AMRO.
Who are we?
Markets is the heart of Corporate Banking, and advises (Large Corporates) cliënts on the purchase and sale of (complex) financial products - for example, currency, stocks, bonds, commodities, energy, and fixed-income and structured products. Our cliënts come from different parts of the bank, from Retail and Private Banking to (Large) Corporate Cliënts and Public Sector and Financial Institutions. We carry out transactions for them 24 hours a day, five days a week, from our dealing room in Amsterdam. That means round the clock - because we offer our full-time expertise to cliënts together with the trading floors in Frankfurt, London, New York, Hong Kong and Singapore.
Working at ABN AMRO means becoming even better at what you do. We understand clients, translate their ambitions into joint success and thus earn their trust. We want our clients to understand our products. It's why we sometimes say 'no' if the risk attached to a product is too great for the cliënt. 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.
What do we offer?
During the entire CMS rotation programme, 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 your technical knowledge, deepen your understanding of financial markets and products, and further develop your personal skills. You'll also regularly get together with the Corporate Banking Graduate Programme's training group.
Who are you?
You’re highly analytical, but you also have a keen eye for promising developments in the market. The fact that sharing knowledge and working as a team are crucially important on the trading floor we don’t need to tell you. You have the ability to bring colleagues with different specialisations together so that you can optimally serve the client. You are results-focused, have an inquisitive mind, enjoy learning new things, and adapt easily to change.
We offer a challenging position with plenty of opportunities, which is why we set clear requirements. Do you think you're a good fit? Check out your profile:
- Master’s degree with above-average grades;
- No more than two years of work experience;
- Relevant extracurricular activities, and/or experience abroad;
- Affinity with the financial world, and interest in investment products;
- (Internship) experience in the financial sector.
