  • Varying job content in a dynamic working environment – The core of the FMI Programme is diversity in every sense: at KBC, we want our trainees to try on different hats before deciding which one fits best. Being able to taste & try out different domains will help you to gain a broad business, technical and product knowledge. To this end, trainees are actively stimulated to give direction when filling in their series of rotations. Areas like sales, trading, brokerage, specialized finance, trade finance, research or corporate finance are examples of possible rotations. 
  • Networking opportunities – Via the different roles you take on, you will be uniquely positioned to liaise with professionals from different departments at all seniority levels.

By joining this programme you also become part of KBC’s trainee community, where you can get inspired by your peers’ experiences and – equally important – have loads of fun.
  • Opportunity to grow – As a trainee, you will benefit from on-the-job coaching & intensive training that will develop you personally as well as professionally. While trainees are encouraged to work autonomously, a direct manager, HR coach and mentor are there to give guidance when needed. Likewise, you can continuously count on the support of seasoned professionals in the field you will be working in.
  • An exciting career path ahead – Successfully completing the FMI Programme gives you ample opportunities to take on a job in KBC Securities, KBC Financial Markets or Trade Finance.
