You and your job

Fine working relationship

  • In the team Rabo Partnerships.
  • Together with 3 direct colleagues.
  • 36 Hours per week.

Work and pleasure

“One of my objectives is to set up and manage partnerships with financial institutions in emerging countries. These countries are often no standard travel destinations, and their local customs and habits are often quite different from the Dutch structured and planned culture. That requires flexibility and the ability to improvise, which makes Rabo Partnerships great fun to work for.”

Joris Timmers, Senior Program Manager at Rabo Partnerships
