Trainee programme

Each year, Erste Group gives a group of bright and highly skilled university graduates the opportunity to discover the world of our banking group. The 18-months programme includes a rigorous series of classroom and distance learning sessions, job rotations in different entities of Erste Group, on-the-job training in their home department and medium-term project work for dedicated business areas.

The purpose of the Group Graduate Programme is to give the young professionals the opportunity to acquire fundamental knowledge of the banking  industry and how business in banking should be conducted. Graduates gain a solid understanding of our core business fields (such as Risk Management and  Corporate Banking), they improve their personal skills in several courses (such as Communication, Presentation techniques and Working in a multicultural  environment) as well as the necessary exposure for a long and successful career within Erste Group.

The programme also creates and fosters a diverse and wide-reaching business network. International assignments and classroom learning in the different entities of Erste Group provide the opportunity for the graduates to not only enhance their knowledge of banking, but also their knowledge of the region and the culture of Central and Eastern Europe.

The next intake of the GGP will start in autumn 2019. From autumn 2018 you can apply for our trainee program 2019.
