Community Investment Programme Manager
NN Group’s overarching community investment programme Future Matters aims to improve people’s financial circumstances and the overall well-being of the communities in which we are active. We aim to create opportunities for others to acquire the skills and experiences they need to make the most of their lives. Through the programme and our local partners we provide (young) people in our communities with support, education, mentors, experiences and/or scholarships to take them from here and today to anywhere and tomorrow.
Together with the NN international Business Units (BUs) you will further develop NN Group's international Corporate Citizenship strategy and contribute to building better and stronger communities.
