IT Systems Trainee Programme
Develop global IT systems, our bank and your career
Rabobank is not a typical bank – and a graduate career with us is no ordinary opportunity either.
Join us on our two-year IT Systems Trainee Programme and you will be able to gain unique insight into our cooperative, socially responsible business while working on IT projects that will help us achieve our goal of being the world’s leading bank in the field of food and agribusiness.
What you will be doing
You’ll rotate through several IT Systems teams, working on a variety of day-to-day tasks and projects while learning about all aspects of financial markets and software delivery methodologies. It’s an opportunity to get a rich and varied insight into our unique IT operations. One month, you could be developing new functionality as part of an Agile Scrum. The next, you could be enhancing systems with a DevOps team. One minute, you’ll be working with internal stakeholders to work out what kind of solutions they need. The next, you’ll be delivering change via Kanban, Lean and Agile methodologies.
Through it all, you’ll be working alongside our professional experts, developing the skills and knowledge you need to become an integral part of Rabobank in the future. And to help you achieve your short- and long-term career goals, we’ll provide you with internal and external training, and the support of a dedicated mentor.
What you will need
Our values are important to us – and we need them to be important to you too. That’s why we are looking for ambitious, enthusiastic graduates who relate to the ideas of Respect, Integrity, Sustainability and Professionalism. You must have at least a 2:2 degree (or equivalent) in a subject such as Computer Science, Maths, Science or Engineering. Other key qualities include:
- Strong analytical skills, logical problem-solving ability and meticulous attention to detail
- Excellent interpersonal skills
- Ability to think on your feet in a busy environment
- Technical skills including Microsoft Office, Excel, scripting language and databases
- Real desire to progress your career within software testing and development or application support
What we offer
With us, you’ll have the chance to build a fascinating and rewarding IT career, and to make a tangible impact on a unique global business. But that’s not the only benefit we offer. As a graduate trainee, you will also enjoy:
- Highly competitive salary
