Are you a young graduate with global ambitions eager to develop your leadership potential? Do you want to become the trusted advisor to our largest clients?
ING offers you the chance to make the absolute most of your talent on a traineeship within the bank: the International Trainee Programme (ITP) – Wholesale Banking Track.

It won’t be easy, but it will be fun!

At the beginning of your 4 year traineeship you’ll rotate between different projects and departments within Wholesale Banking Czech Republicc. After your rotations, you get to choose two long term positions based on your experience and area of interest.
ING needs people with the drive to take on big challenges and the leadership skills to bring others along with them. That’s why over the course of the programme your will get to know our Think Forward Strategy, learn the basics of banking in a broad perspective and the environment we are operating in. Moreover, you will be learning how to lead, communicate and collaborate, as well as gain specific expertise in Wholesale Banking.
As a global bank, we need global minded leaders. That’s why one of your rotations is going to be an international placement in one of our 20 countries – otherwise we’d have just called it the Trainee Programme!
Furthermore, every year you will join a global learning event where you’ll meet your fellow trainees from around the world: two intense weeks of learning, collaborating and connecting. The start of your international network.

Wholesale Banking

As a Wholesale Banking trainee, you’ll play an active role in the dynamic, globe-straddling world of corporate banking. You’ll be doing essential work as a trusted advisor for big clients, on big deals.
We operate in small, close-knit teams to meet the financing needs of governments, corporations and financial institutions. It’s a high pressure, deal-driven environment that demands analytical skills and plenty of initiative.
As a Wholesale Banking trainee, you’ll be thrown in at the deep end from day one. You’ll quickly familiarize yourself with our clients’ businesses and the sectors they operate in. Within weeks, you’ll be contributing analysis and recommendations that will inform important decisions.
There’s no instruction manual for the work we do. You’ll have the support of senior colleagues, but how you achieve your objectives is up to you. Along the way, you’ll learn the fundamentals of corporate financing deals. You’ll also master the art of negotiation and relationship management: skills that will benefit you for life.
