Here is your chance to meet some of our Graduates, and hear what they say about being part of the programme and Nordea.
- Stina Rathsach Andersen
Why did you decide to join Nordea?
There has been a big focus on the banking sector - changes in regulatory landscape, customer behavior, digitalization etc. Many banks are forced to trim and improve the quality of their balance sheets to meet customer demands through both relationships and digital solutions. Knowing that, I thought it would be very interesting to work with these challenges. Being Scandinavian’s largest bank, Nordea was attractive as I would be exposed to the challenges across all Nordic countries and at the same time widen my scope and responsibilities.
Fun fact: I am obsessed with music and whenever I discover a new song, it will be on repeat for days - my record is hearing
a song 432 times.

- Thea Stensaker
What about Nordea are you proud of?
I’m most proud of the culture and my co-workers at Nordea. You are constantly challenged, encouraged to step out of your comfort zone and at the same time your co-workers are there supporting you and pushing you to excel even further. It is a fun place to work with friendly and open people. If you are eager to learn, want to challenge yourself and “carve your own path”, then Nordea is the place for you.
Fun fact: I held my first public speech when I was six years old! It was at Christmas Eve for approximately 400 people and I spoke about compassion (nestekjærlighet in Norwegian) and how we should remember to take care of each other.

Why should Graduates join Nordea?
Joining Nordea as a Graduate gives you the opportunity to work in a company that has high ambitions, great people and is going through a major transformation. As a Graduate, you have an important role to play within that transformation. While working with interesting initiatives you are at the same time given the time to work on your personal development to help realize your aspirations.
Fun fact: I am afraid of heights but still had bungy jumping on my bucket list. When I went to New Zealand I felt compelled to challenge myself and give it a try. It was important to show to myself that curiosity beats fear. Unfortunately, I'm now even more scared of heights.
- Remus Puspan
The best about working at Nordea?
Do you care about sustainability and want to make an impact on addressing climate change issues? I do, and as a Graduate at Nordea I am able to make a major difference on sustainability.
What most of my friends don’t know (yet) is that one of the most effective ways in which we can make a difference on the sustainability agenda is how we invest our savings.
That is why I am here, working for the largest bank in the Nordics. We have a crucial role in helping customers, companies and even societies with financing the sustainable products and solutions of tomorrow. During the graduate year I have just completed, I was genuinely surprised to see how many of my Nordea colleagues share this passion for sustainability. Are you going to become one as well?
- Alicja Kawecka
What is the best part about working at a large Nordic company?
I’m passionate about helping people. I love to help customers, and for me, it is very motivating to receive feedback from a satisfied customer. Then I know my work is important and that I’m able to have a positive impact on people’s lives where I bring them value. I also enjoy helping colleagues and I’m convinced that we become better when we collaborate. If you share my passion, you’ll have endless possibilities in Nordea.
Fun fact: I am a hardcore board game enthusiast. All my friends know if they come over, they cannot leave until there is a clear winner! My board game playing record is 16 hours.
