Finance Traineeship

Are you also convinced that manual reporting and performing repetitive actions should be done differently? And that it makes your day more interesting when you can automate financial processes? Then our Young Talent Program in Finance might be interesting  for you. As a Young Talent Finance, you work in a rapidly changing environment. Next to numerical skills you possess communicative skills  operating effectively within your team. In addition to a challenging position in finance, the Young Talent Program also offers you a personalized program in which you will learn both the technical and soft-skills required to develop yourself into an authentic high-end professional.

What does your work as a Finance Expert look like?

Collaboration and teamwork are at the core of your daily work. With a team of talented colleagues, you are responsible for the relevant daily reports for internal and external stakeholders. In addition to these activities, you are one of the driving forces behind the financial oriented change process of the bank or insurer. Your day-to-day activities include:

  • Identifying bottlenecks and optimizing reporting processes;
  • Delivering up-to-date reports and management information;
  • Doing research into new techniques and tooling, and test these afterwards;
  • Analysing data and creating dashboards to provide your stakeholders with the necessary insights.

You will have to proactively engage different stakeholders and be prepared to answer ad hoc questions, performing plausibility checks and signalling shortcomings in the internal control framework. In short, you know how to skilfully combine your financial background with your technical- and data analytical skills. The specifics of you work duties will be fine-tuned, and are dependent on what type of financial institution you will be employed at, either a bank, insurer or asset manager.
