Programme timeline

The journey of the ING International Talent Programme starts with onboarding, local and international, to get you acquainted with ING in general and your office and colleagues in particular.

For the first 12 to 18 months you will rotate between different projects or jobs. After that you will start your first position. During the full four years of the programme you will participate in training aimed at your further personal and professional development.


Local onboarding

If selected for the IITP, you start with an extensive introduction at your local ING office. This means familiarizing yourself with your office facilities and colleagues, and meeting your talent manager. Together you will determine the projects you will work on and create your development plan. We believe that one of the most valuable assets to your career is having a good mentor. That’s why you are also assigned a personal mentor, who will take you under his/her wing and coach you from the start. This Senior ING Executive will challenge and inspire you and provide you with a helicopter view of your career development and goals.

Central onboarding

Following your local onboarding introduction you fly to our headquarters in Amsterdam for a two week-long international onboarding event. The purpose of the international onboarding event is to meet your fellow trainees and our senior executives, and to learn about the IITP, our business areas, strategies, values and business principles such as corporate responsibility. It’s important to us that you are familiar with our organisation and know what we stand for. And to understand where we are going, you need to know where we came from. You will also start working on your personal development plan, learn about banking fundamentals and, last but not least, have some fun, get inspired and build your network.

First yearLike you, we have an international outlook, an entrepreneurial spirit and a proactive approach to everything we do.
