From Graduate to Leader
in two years

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.

An instant global network

During the programme, you will be invited to international boot camps across the Nordics where you get to connect with your international colleagues. This is a unique opportunity as it can take years to acquire connections with so many diverse colleagues across the business and globe. Even when you’re not travelling for boot camps, you’ll collaborate with colleagues from all kinds of backgrounds with diverse experience every day. There’s something energising about fresh perspectives. Just like a cup of coffee, it gives you that boost to go further faster.


We see your limitless potential

We believe that we are fundamentally better together, and we believe in empowering all of our employees with challenging tasks. As a Graduate, your voice is heard and challenging the status quo is encouraged. When it comes to your tasks, you'll take a deep dive into important value adding projects and assignments from day one. 

You are the new bright minds, you bring fresh perspectives and we value your contribution.
