Young Talent Program

We continued investing in promising graduates by enhancing our Young Talent Program in 2011. The response to our recruitment advertisement on our website was exceeded expectations. More than 80 applicants applied for three Trainee positions. The new program is structured so the trainees begin their career at FMO by each working in six different departments during an 18-month period, learning about the bank before taking on an analyst role and eventually a full credit officer or investment officer position.

We continued our sponsorship of the Studenten Ondernemersprijs (Student Entrepreneur Prize). By sponsoring such events, we strengthen relationships with promising students and raise FMO's recruitment profile. The winner receives 'the FMO experience'- the chance to join one of our investment officers on a business trip.
