It may sound so simple, but it’s an aspirational promise loaded with potential. At Nordea, we’re open. To new ideas. To being challenged. To different perspectives. To growth and innovation.
When we recently asked colleagues from different countries and business areas why they enjoy working at Nordea, we discovered some key themes. They are connected to the way we offer you great opportunities to grow while taking part in reinventing banking for the future. They are also about the unique atmosphere in Nordea where you’ll be surrounded by brilliant people with a wide range of backgrounds, skillsets and experiences. Add all of this together, you’ll find yourself working for a shared purpose – making our work even more meaningful and enjoyable.
To new ideas. To being challenged. To different perspectives. To growth and innovation. To you.
The world is changing fast. Shifting customer needs, increasing societal expectations, environmental uncertainty and new technologies are just some of the realities we’re tackling. We see this as an obligation and an opportunity to combine our best minds and lead the way to reinvent banking. We will get there faster, by being open. With us, you’ll never stop growing and being part of something bigger.
This is our promise to you.
"I think the greatest part about 'We're open' is that we're open about you - we're open for you, that means every part of you."
- Karen Tobiasen, Chief People Officer

We want learning to be in our DNA. In a rapidly changing environment disrupted by new technologies and new business models every day, one thing remains constant: change. That’s why we need people who enjoy learning and developing. People who take ownership for their contribution, growth and enjoyment.
In return, we’re creating an environment for innovation that provides the space for experimentation, rewards courage and creativity and empowers our people to listen, learn and act all the time. At Nordea, we actively seek feedback and shift mindset to turn our challenges into opportunities to learn. As one of the largest employers in the Nordics, with us, there is plenty of space for you to grow.
