What career opportunities does Nordea offer?
Our staff work in many very different fields, so we need people specialised in finance, customer relationships, sales, corporate law, product development, human resources and IT, and many other areas to join our team. Through the nordea.com/career webpage you can meet the employees of the Nordea Group, listen to them share their experience and learn about the various positions and jobs at Nordea. Similar professional profiles can be also found in Nordea Estonia.
What qualities do you value in your new employees?
We expect our new employees to be interested in the development of the financial sector and willing to take up new challenges. We highly value ambition, readiness to take responsibility and previous work experience or participation in social activities. We also appreciate the ability to fulfil goals and the desire to develop personal and professional skills. In addition, we place great importance on the ability to build and maintain good relationships. It is also important for our employees to fit in with the general values of Nordea.
What are the typical career paths at Nordea?
We view career planning as a continuous process and expect our employees to take responsibility for their career and its development. Employees have biannual appraisal meetings with their managers, to discuss their future at Nordea and plan their next steps together.
Some employees of Nordea Estonia have been promoted from bank tellers to advisors with their own customer portfolio; from top specialists to international experts in credit management; from junior specialists to corporate customer managers or product managers. However, while we like to see people making progress on their career path, we also value employees who work in a single position over a longer period of time, developing their skills and expertise and putting their valuable experience into practice.
What opportunities do I have for my personal and professional development?
We offer our employees various ways to develop their personal and professional skills. We believe that skill development mainly takes place in daily work, through new and challenging assignments. We also organise practical training courses and e-learning courses, and we encourage our people to participate in various projects. Different development activities can be also combined with training courses within the Nordea Group or elsewhere.
