FOR DUTCH STUDENTS ONLY
Hello there, future Trainee! Can we entrust you with a leading role in our organisation?
We are Achmea. Turn on the evening news on any night and chances are that many of the stories covered are in some way – even tangentially – related to our core business: insurance. Whether you’re talking about healthcare, pensions or various kinds of damage and loss, the work we do has an impact on developments in society. But first and foremost, what we do affects the lives of our customers, who range from consumers to government agencies, exchange-listed companies and small and medium-sized enterprises. Offering brands such as Centraal Beheer, Interpolis, FBTO and Zilveren Kruis, nine domestic sites and around 12,500 employees nationwide, we are the largest insurance company in the Netherlands. Pretty impressive, don’t you think? And our status as a major employer is certainly also reflected in the endless opportunities we provide for personal development. The question we’d like to ask you is: can you remain one step ahead of the future?
What we offer
We provide three challenging traineeships: a Management Traineeship, a Financial Management Traineeship and an IT Management Traineeship. You will spend two years working on your personal development as part of a number of different projects within our organisation. These are not standard programmes but rather tailored to your individual needs, skills and abilities.
To promote your personal development, you will attend an external training programme (consisting of six sessions) together with your fellow trainees. These are two-day training courses where we briefly forget about the day-to-day business of Achmea and instead focus on more general topics such as leadership, power and influence.
Achmea trainees must be in possession of a Master’s degree, be team players and driven by a passion for improvement and change. We are looking for people who were engaged in a wide range of extracurricular activities during their studies.
You can start the programme in March and September – check out our new online application process. The Achmea Talent Pitch is a new way for us to get to know each other better and give you a taste of what it’s really like to work at Achmea – and a chance for you to bowl us over with your talent! If we turn out to be a good fit, you will be invited for an interview at one of our sites, followed by a final selection day, after which you will find out immediately if you’ve been selected for the traineeship programme.
If you’re interested, we look forward to welcoming you at the STAR Management Week!
