Fast-moving changes in the world of finance
There are around 3,500 finance professionals working at ING. The world of finance is certainly very dynamic and is currently going through a series of rapid developments: tighter regulation of financial services, changes to legislation, etc. It is therefore essential for finance professionals at ING to keep working on their own development so that they can stay abreast of changes in their specialist area.
The financial elite
As you’d expect, we don’t take on just anyone for a vacancy in this department – in order to work as a finance professional for a provider of financial services, you have to be able to demonstrate exceptional skills and capabilities. In fact, we go a step further than that. We are looking to employ the financial elite: people with a couple of years’ work experience, for example, who have already proved that they are worth their salt, or professionals with an MBA qualification – the very best students from the very best universities.
An entrepreneurial attitude
To be a successful finance professional at ING, you need to have a strong entrepreneurial streak, in terms of taking charge of your own career as well as in your own specialist area. You must be able to adapt rapidly and seamlessly to new situations, since you will be involved with many projects within different parts of the business. Your role will be a demanding one, but your pro-active and innovative approach will enable you to put your expertise to the best possible use.
Facing new challenges on a daily basis
This role may demand a lot from you, but it also offers you a lot in return: a top-class international employer providing you all the scope you need for your own further development – surrounded on all sides by experts and specialists, what a great way to share and build knowledge. Furthermore, ING is a dynamic organisation which focuses on creating new challenges and designing innovative solutions, so you never need to reach the point that you are bored or frustrated. And as for taking a leading role in improving the level of customer service that our thousands of clients experience, whether they’re internal or external customers and wherever they may be in the world – what job can beat that?
