Experience Loes van Dommelen (Trainee Finance)

Within NN Group, several opportunities for improvement are available, which is the reason I thought of writing my letter of motivation for the Finance Traineeship of this organization. Whereas most companies advertise their company is the finest, NN indicated they are doing a very good job, but still much work remains to be done. As I was just graduated in my master Finance, I thought I could be of added value for further growth or improvement in this company. Also, during the in-house day, I noticed NN Group truly cares about your personality, and that people in the organization approach you in an open manner. These were for me the main reasons to decide to start writing that letter of motivation.

At this moment, being for half a year within the company already, I did not regret that decision for a moment. I started at Finance Strategy, a department mainly driven on projects focusing on improvements in the finance function while linking between the Finance and Risk function. I get the opportunity to work on challenging projects, and I can also see what my colleagues in other projects are working on through the weekly stand-up meetings.

For me personally, I really value the fact that you can be of added value within your department directly, while being in a traineeship at the same time. Every month, trainee business days and training days are organized for all trainees, to ensure we all get to know the company very well, but also to get to know ourselves even better by continue to develop ourselves. As every trainee starts at a different department, you will have a very broad network throughout the whole organization directly. So there is always someone you can ask for advice when needed, or with whom you can grab a coffee, or even start the Friday afternoon drinks with.
