Make an impact as a trainee
IT is the beating heart if ING. It touches every aspect of the bank and forms the basis for many of our innovations. We’re leading the way in terms of mobile applications based on various operating systems. The large majority of our customer contact takes place online.
Today’s IT decisions influence how our company will look in five years’ time. We implement the very best IT solutions and develop our own software.
Your first year
Your HR trainee manager will assist you in choosing your first rotation based on your own interest and learning goals. This rotation lasts approximately six months.
For example, you could set to work as DevOps Engineer, IT Security Engineer, Architect, Java Developer or in the area of Cyber security.
During your first rotation you also work together with fellow trainees from other tracks on a group assignment to tackle a challenge that is relevant to our business. This gives you the opportunity to expand your network within ING and practice your stakeholder management skills.
With these new experiences and contacts, you are in charge to arrange your second rotation. Now it comes down to addressing your network and taking the initiative. We encourage it to gain international experience during this six-month period,( if possible with local Covid-19 restrictions) which is not only great fun but is also good for your personal and professional development.
Your second year
After two rotations, you now have a better understanding of which direction you would like to go and are ready to choose your third rotation. Are you broadening your knowledge within your track, or would you like to explore a business area within another track?
During your third rotation you’ll start networking for your fixed position. This permanent role lets you go deeper into the field of IT right from the start.
You expand your knowledge and hone your skills, while working on your further development as a e.g. DevOps Engineer, Python Developer, Enterprise Architect or Security Specialist.
Training and Coaching
As a trainee there will be many opportunities to discover and develop yourself. Your HR trainee manager coaches you during your three rotations. For extra guidance you can reach out to your line manager or ask a senior manager to mentor you. During the second year of your traineeship you’ll also benefit from a few personal sessions with an external coach.
During your traineeship, you participate in two Global Trainee events focused on professional and personal skills together with all ING’s trainees – across all tracks – from around the world.
