Building a strong internal network

The Graduate programme was a good way to jump start my career. For me the most valuable aspect was that I have had a lot of good managers who have invested their time and effort to help me identify my strengths and weaknesses. It has also helped me grow and get as much out of the programme as possible. I have had the chance to work in many different teams and projects in which I have been able to build a strong internal network within Nordea. This has given me the possibility to get career guidance and feedback from a lot of different people and make well informed career choices.  - Mikael Rahkamo, Head of Business Banking Unit

Nordea Markets LC&I Graduate programme

Launch your career – shape your future

Being the leading international capital operator and investment banking partner in the Nordic region, we can offer you an ideal opportunity to kick-start your career. As a graduate you work together with some of the best people in the industry, and when stepping on to one of our four trading floors, you'll instantly feel that buzzing, dynamic atmosphere which you quickly will become a part of.

It’s a two-part graduate programme, divided into a general part and a business track. The openings differ from country to country, but whether you are located in Denmark, Finland, Norway or Sweden, the programme will run the same course.

The general part runs for one year, during which time you will attend several international seminars and meet fellow graduates from other countries in the bank. You will have a mentor and you gain a solid overview and a great network, not only within Nordea Markets LC&I but across Nordea.

The business track runs for one to two years where you get to specialise in a chosen business area. You can pursue a career as sales manager, analyst, trader, researcher, developer or some other position within our business. You will get hands-on experience and responsibility from day one – with full support from colleagues in your team.

As a graduate in Nordea Markets LC&I, you will be hired for a specific position, and since you’ll be on a fast track, the learning curve is steep, not to mention rewarding when you succeed – which we will help you with.
