1. Rabobank Global Traineeship

The Rabobank Global Traineeship offers you the opportunity to get to know Rabobank in 16 months and to be busy with many interesting facets of the organisation such as Markets, Corporate Finance, Strategy, Innovation, Rabobank Foundation and Rabo Development. You will rotate four times during your traineeship, so you will be working in four different departments.

About this traineeship

These rotations are chosen based on your study background, preference and growth potential. An international rotation can be part of this. In addition, personal development is a big part of the programme, which you will do in different, diverse groups and in several challenges. Whilst working within the different departments, you will also start to improve yourself, both professionally and personally, through (development) training on soft- and hard skills. In addition, a buddy, a former trainee, helps you to find your way within the bank and you will be guided by a talent manager and a mentor. If you successfully complete these 16 months, you will choose a position within Rabobank that suits you best. Read here about a trainee’s experience!
