Are you socially aware as well as truly analytical? Do you have the desire to work in a fast and dynamic environment in the largest dealing room in continental Europe?
Then the Global Markets track of our Corporate Banking Graduate Programme may be the perfect fit for you. From the Zuidas in Amsterdam, you’ll find the best deals for your clients and guide them in the complex world of financial products. 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.
In your first few weeks at ABN AMRO you’ll follow the Corporate Banking Graduate 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 – 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 Graduate Programme. Following the initial general training, you’ll start in the Global Markets rotation programme, during which you’ll get to know as many different parts of the dealing room as possible 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.
After 18 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. From day one, you’ll 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 new business development initiatives within our strategy team, 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 stand you in good stead for a great career at ABN AMRO.
Your working environment
Markets is the heart of Corporate Banking, and advises (Large Corporates) 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 come from different parts of the bank, from Retail and Private Banking to (Large) Corporate Clients, 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 clients 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 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.

You are results-focused, have an inquisitive mind, enjoy learning new things, and adapt easily to changing environments .We offer a challenging position with plenty of opportunities, which is why we set clear requirements.
