Your job

The Credit Risk Decisioning Traineeship starts in September 2024 and lasts 2 years. The traineeship kicks off with a general introduction day at head office, where you will meet your graduate group consisting of all new trainees across all Corporate Banking Traineeships (~15-20 in total). For the first 5 weeks, you will join your fellow graduates in completing a course at the prestigious Nyenrode Business University to learn banking fundamentals in fields such as Financial Markets, Banking Products, Financial Analysis, Modelling, Banking Regulation, Valuations and Credit Risk. ABN AMRO employees will also join to provide supplementary courses and ‘get to know you’ sessions.

Once you have completed the course, you will begin your first rotation within one of the Credit Risk Decisioning teams. You will join a new team every 4-5 months to support a steep learning curve. After these 2 years, your traineeship will conclude, and you will be placed in one of the Credit Risk Decisioning teams to further develop your knowledge and specialise in a specific sector. We will provide you with all the training and coaching that you need to help you develop both professionally and personally.
