Allow your talent to flourish and enjoy the best experience in our Analytics traineeship.
Our Analytics traineeship enables you to steer your career in a direction that suits your talent and passion. The 2 year programme allows you to discover yourself through a wide selection of (online) professional and personal skills trainings.
Make an impact as a trainee
It all starts with data – but also with the people who know what can and may be done with it and how data can be used for the customer’s benefit.
We are incredibly excited about Analytics and the great potential for progress and innovation. We believe that analytics is a key differentiator in bringing “anytime, anywhere, personalized” services to our customers.
We wish to improve our operational processes and create new and innovative data driven products that go beyond traditional banking, such as the platform models. Achieving this vision will require us to build and expand on our analytical efforts and organize ourselves around focused value buckets with strong coordination capabilities of data, technology, customer journey, UX, as well as external partnerships.
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, Financial Crime & Regulatory Tech. How can we ensure ING is an even more secure and more compliant bank? Or, Working on people analytics for HR.
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 Analytics right from the start. You expand your knowledge and hone your skills, while working on your further development as a Data Scientist, Data Modeler or Data Engineer.
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. On top of this, throughout the year various virtual trainee days are organized where you’ll learn about ING and work on your professional skills.
