Would you like to work internationally throughout different countries and are you ready to constantly challenge and develop yourself?

Do you have an ambition to pursue a career in a technical and highly experienced environment which offers countless development opportunities? Then this is the perfect traineeship for you!
NN offers an international three-year program where you have the chance to rotate yearly between different teams in the Risk/Actuarial or Data Science departments across three different countries. Here you will have the ability to show your analytic skills and deal with the vast amount of data we have at NN and further advance yourself towards becoming a highly valued specialist or risk manager. Alongside these roles, you will also be part of an immersive development program which has a clear focus on personal improvement and creating content which is relevant and adaptive to your needs.
