Paid: Summer of Innovation - Professional Experience Programme

Internship atNordeaStockholm,Sweden

Job Description

Are you interested in innovation and business development, excited about the digital world, curious and solution oriented by nature, a good team player and an enthusiastic person with a doer mindset?

At Nordea’s Business Innovation unit (a part of Transaction Banking), we work actively with creating value for our largest corporate customers - which coincidentally are some of the largest companies in the Nordics. Our unit works directly with the largest corporate customers in identifying new business opportunities, as well as realising those opportunities. Through innovation sprints, co-creation and co-development we pave the way for the future of banking. 

The offer
The financial industry is undergoing a massive disruption right now - and we want to offer you the opportunity to be on the frontlines of this and drive change and innovation at Nordea - the largest Nordic bank.  

We are looking for new and bright minds to join us in our work taking on the challenges with some of the largest corporations in the Nordics. You’ll be working closely and side-by- side with us, getting your hands dirty, as we are co-creating and coming up with new products and solutions to existing problems and pain points. It’s the perfect chance for you to try something new - or maybe a completely new industry and apply your skills in a new setting. Together with our team, you’ll take business opportunities from ideation to a tested concept in just a few days.

We are looking for a broad range of backgrounds for this position - you definitely don’t need to have a traditionalfinancial background. Whether you come from the ad industry, from a start-up or any other industry - we want you to come and apply your skills in a completely new setting!

The programme will start on August 13th 2018 and run until September 30th 2018. There are six positions available, 3 in Stockholm and 3 in Helsinki. The position is very competitively compensated. We are not able to provide accommodation.

You will bring your professional experience and apply it in a completely new setting. Your work will consist of: 

Analysis and identifying of business and customer opportunities    

Innovation and ideation sketching

Research and problem solving

Prototype and storyboard creation

Stakeholder management

Who are you

You should have at least one year of professional working experience (anything counts) to apply. We’re looking for a range of skillsets so regardless if your focus area is psychology or UX design - apply!

In terms of who you are, we would like you to have the following general traits:

Result-driven problem-solver with high integrity who believes that work is and should be fun and exciting

Passion for innovation and solution development

A strong ability to think and act strategically, even in situations of ambiguity, to develop both short- and long-term visions

Experience in other industries and business models than banking

Strongly believe in collaboration and enjoy working within tight diverse teams

Strong communication skills
