Your job

In your first few weeks at ABN AMRO Clearing, you’ll follow the Global Clearing Graduate Programme together with your fellow graduates, during which you’ll get to know the bank. Besides a broad introduction to ABN AMRO Clearing, you’ll participate in hands-on training in the fields of Commerce, Finance, Securities & Borrowing & Lending, Operations, IT, Product Development, Risk Management and personal development. Trainings will be delivered by those at the top of their field – including Nyenrode Business University lecturers, professional trainers and ABN AMRO Clearing managers.Together, they will give you a solid basis for further development within Clearing. At the same time, you will build an international network of graduates. A great start to your ABN AMRO Global Clearing Graduate Programme.

As part of the rotation program to gain experience in one of our offices abroad, you will be working in your ‘home’country for 6 month and spend 6 month working in one of the other Clearing locations. Following the initial general training, you’ll start with your first rotation of six months. During your two rotations in the Global Clearing Graduate Program you’ll get to know as many different parts of the global Clearing organisation as possible over the course of 12 months. You’ll also get the chance to branch out into one of the other departments (Risk, Finance, IT, Products, Operations and Commerce) within Clearing – thereby broadening your knowledge and network. After 12 months, you’ll be ready to find a role that best matches your skills and ambitions.

It sounds like a cliché, but every day is different within Clearing. Because the work is ever-changing and clients are highly demanding, you’re guaranteed to learn a lot in a short space of time. From day one, you’ll work on your own assignment, for which you’ll take full responsibility. For instance, you could be working on a new product, developing a new risk model,  or you may be involved in the on boarding of new global clients.

Your working environment

Clearing is a post-trade activity by which an organization acts as an intermediary and assumes the role of a buyer and seller in a transaction to reconcile orders between transacting parties. The aim is to reduce risk and make financial markets more efficient. Clearing is necessary for the matching of all buy and sell orders in the market.Today we clear and finance over 16 million trades per day and we cover 90 of the world’s leading exchanges across Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific. Our international network provides comprehensive market access to exchange listed instruments such as stocks, futures and options. It also covers non-exchange listed investment instruments and alternative products including bonds, OTC derivatives, warrants, forex, forwards, energy and commodities. 

ABN AMRO Clearing consistently ranks among the top three clearers in every time zone, based on turnover and market share.

Working at ABN AMRO Clearing means becoming even better at what you do. We understand clients and strive to deliver the most professional service. ABN AMRO Clearing Bank is a subsidiary of ABN AMRO Bank NV which holds its own banking licence and has around 800 staff members worldwide with offices in Amsterdam (HQ), London, Frankfurt, Paris, Chicago, New York, Sao Paulo, Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Sydney.  Find out more about ABN AMRO Clearing at:
