When the world is your oyster, there is no limit to what you can achieve. For graduates with in-depth knowledge of their field who are service oriented, have a strong cooperative ability and take a smart approach to complex problems, anything is possible. Choosing the right career path is the real challenge. So come to Rabobank! Our Young Professional Program in Risk Management is designed to help you climb to the top of your field. Rabobank is a bank that feels responsible for its clients and for our society. And it is an employer that offers employees a chance to make a difference their way, and to be the best they can be.

Risk Management is all about a healthy balance between risk and return. As an innovative game-changer, your new ideas help you, a Young Professional, to contribute to shaping our policy. You'll instantly be given responsibility. You'll share it with other professionals like credit analysts, IT and data specialists and members of the Compliance, Legal and Risk Management team. If details and precision are more your thing, our financial models department or stress test departments may appeal to you more.  With 4 rotations in different risk management departments you''ll see firsthand how risk is managed and you will even get the chance to travel abroad.  Risk management is high on the international agenda too.

Reset Your Thinking

A positive view of the banking sector is relatively rare, so maybe you haven't even considered working for a bank.  But it's worth considering that Rabobank could be a place where you can have an impact and start making the world a better place from your first day on the job. If you're considering Rabobank, you probably already know that we provide financial services to more than 8.5 million customers in 40 countries. But you may not realize how seriously we take our social responsibility.  In at least 101 ways. Here are a few concrete examples:

  • We are working with the Dutch Council for Refugees to find suitable jobs for 1,500 refugees.
  • An agreement under the UN World Food Programme now ensures that more agricultural products are being purchased from smallholders in Rwanda, Tanzania and Zambia.  We want to expand this platform to include 1.5 million farmers in 25 countries by 2030.

Surprised? Don't be. It's Rabobank.

Koen Vonk, Young Professional, currently in Risk Management Wholesale Rural and Retail: “In the Risk Management Young Professional Program I’ve learned that if you dare to take initiative and challenge yourself and the bank, anything is possible at Rabobank. I’ve seen our business from London to New York and worked with our regulators and biggest clients. The program has offered me a unique opportunity to start my career.”
