Rabobank is a bank that works for its customers and members. We are one of the largest financial institutions in the world, but we're still very involved at the local level. Our goal is to help customers achieve their goals. In addition, we aim to make a substantial contribution to the well-being and prosperity of people in the Netherlands and to a sustainable global food supply.
We are a bank with cooperative roots. Everything we do, we do together. With co-workers, members and other organizations. We believe in building on each other’s strengths and making each other stronger. You get better results from working together than going it alone. Now and in the future.
Do you want a career in which you can start making a difference from day 1? Rabobank is the place to do it. For instance, in an internship researching how blockchain technology can improve the food chain. Or as a trainee who does risk assessments for wind farm financing. At Rabobank, we help you to be the best and most effective version of yourself.
Your development is key and we invest in an environment where you learn by doing. Already know what you want to do? We’ll give you the space and opportunity. Still figuring it out? We can help.

Rabobank is a social bank. Working for Rabobank is a way to make the world just a little better. In big and small ways, we want to help more people become more financially self-reliant and ensure sustainable growth for entrepreneurs. We are dedicated to improving our local environments and are also committed to addressing the global food shortage, step by step. Change takes time, after all.
Rabobank has launched an ambitious new programme for graduates: Rabo Global Traineeship. One year that revolves around you.
During this year, you and Rabobank will explore where you and your talents are the best fit and discover where your head and heart lie. You will get to know the entire Rabobank organisation, giving you and us the chance to find out where your talents are best utilised and where you can make the greatest impact for our clients, each other and the world around us.
After completing Rabo Global Traineeship, you become a banker and a world of opportunities will be open to you that are in line with your wishes and Rabobank’s ambitions. You will be able to take challenging next steps across the width and breadth of the bank that correspond with your development. A few examples of these opportunities include: working as an analyst on complex corporate finance deals, as a project manager on IT projects and performing the role of relationship manager or risk analyst.
You can’t wait to jumpstart your career, but the question at this point is where’s the best place for you. And very important, you have ideas about how to enable Rabobank to fulfil its mission to play a committed role in society and to help solve the global food issue.
The Rabo Global Traineeship is about your development. In a customized programme every trainee follows its own journey with three different projects in the Netherlands and abroad, trainings, personal development and guidance from four different tutors.
Good. That’s one of the traits we look for in our trainees. Just like a positive mindset, resilience and the urge to make yourself, Rabobank and the world better. You also have an HBO Master’s degree, or a university degree. Graduates from all fields are welcome to apply, from psychology to econometrics. Over the course of 1 year, you’ll work on four assignments at different departments, letting you sample all sorts of different work, so that you can decide what suits you best. Besides, you’ll meet a lot of people. So polish up your LinkedIn profile, because: hello extensive network!
How do you start?
You start with nineteen other trainees in October. You’ll be given a baptism of fire during the kick-off, when you’ll get in touch with all other starting trainees, and make your voice heard at the bank. After the first introduction week, it’s time to get started on your first assignment. Naturally, we’ll make sure to guide and support you throughout the process and you’ll have the opportunity to take courses and training sessions to help you achieve your goals.
