Functie omschrijving

Why would you want to work for NIBC’s Strategy & Development team?

NIBC Retail Banking is active in mortgage lending, consumer lending and savings products in The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. We focus on simple and transparent products in order to best serve our clients. The Strategy & Development team is responsible for creating an up-to-date and clear international strategy for Retail Banking. Furthermore, the Strategy & Development team joins forces with other Retail Banking departments to develop ideas to further grow and enhance Retail Banking’s business via new products, new markets, new channels and/or new partnerships. These business development activities contribute to a diverse combination of work.

What will you do?

Our team offers ambitious and talented students in the final year of their education the opportunity of an internship. As an intern you are an integral part of the S&D team and you will work in small and focused project teams. In addition, it is possible to write your thesis in a business environment in combination with working on several projects (subject to be agreed).

This internship is characterised by a dynamic environment providing many intellectual challenges. Your main responsibilities include conducting industry research, preparing documents for management meetings and pitch presentations, assisting in writing proposals, taking part in (ongoing) projects, conducting financial analysis of prospective new products and contributing to internal team meetings. You will work closely with other Retail Banking teams and with professionals from different other disciplines within the bank (for example Structuring, IT, Risk, Compliance, Legal, Tax, etc.).

What you will get?

  • The benefits of a smaller dynamic firm: being able to work where, when and how you want. Being an intern in a smaller bank will give you substantial responsibilities, direct exposure to senior management and enable you to rapidly understand how the entire bank works and where you can best leverage your talents.
  • High-performing interns may be invited to join our Talent Program after graduation. Check our website for more information:

In overleg met bedrijf

Wat biedt het bedrijf je

Talent program

At NIBC we hire young talents for a specific position within a team that fits your talents, personality and ambition. As part of a relatively small and dynamic firm, you will have an immediate impact. Over time, as a trusted partner, you will be there to help your clients during their most decisive moments. Next to the specific knowledge you will learn within your team, we want to develop your general knowledge about NIBC and your professional skills.

What does the Talent Program look like?

The Talent Program kicks off with an onboarding week, during which you will receive a gamified introduction to NIBC and banking. Together with a diverse and

international group of fellow analysts and colleagues you will get five days of networking, bonding and immersion in the bank’s business model.

Onboarding week

After the onboarding week, you will determine your personal development plan together with your coach and manager. The plan will be tailored to you with a focus on personal, professional, and technical growth. You will be allocated a personal budget to help you achieve your ambitions and reduce your time to perform.

Group training & one-on-one coaching

In a sequence of four 2-day modules, you will receive one-on-one coaching as well as group training to kickstart your development plan. Learning by doing is key in this process – you will be challenged with many hands-on exercises and cases to hone your skills.

Think Yes Challenge

In parallel, you will start with your Think Yes Challenge. Together with a group of interdisciplinary analysts, you will initiate a project that contributes to bank-wide issues of strategic importance. It is an opportunity to develop your Think Yes mentality, make an impact, and gain exposure to top management. During the closing event you will pitch the results directly to NIBC’s managing board.

During the program you will also travel to Frankfurt to visit NIBC’s German office, network with your German colleagues, and enjoy one of Europe’s financial capitals.
