Junior analyst in Ship Finance

Required language
Dutch, English



Did you just finish your Master’s degree and are you looking for your next step? Meet NIBC: a small bank with a big heart and great opportunities for (up-and-coming) talent in corporate banking. Discover the diversity of our Ship Finance field as a junior analyst, find out how you can contribute to the funding of remarkable transactions and see how much you can learn from your experienced and helpful colleagues.  

Job Description:

As an analyst, you will assist us in capitalising on new business opportunities and in the daily management of existing transactions. As a junior, you will start with supportive activities, but you will soon receive more responsibilities. Moreover, your teammates will include you in everything they do, which means you will get a good idea of the job very quickly.   

Your activities:  

  • You will have a supportive role in portfolio management. As part of this, you will review the performance of transactions, handle catch-up calls, and act as a point of contact for customers.  
  • When there's a new deal on the horizon, you will become part of the ‘deal team’, which means you will be involved in the entire process, from the very beginning up to the point the deal is closed. You will analyse company information, including financial market data and models. On top of that, you will help draft the transaction proposal and assist in the closing process.  
  • You will coordinate the cooperation with other departments, such as Legal, Compliance, Risk and Operations.

Your team  

You will work in the Shipping team. This team consists of 15 colleagues that work together closely and regularly have activities outside work. Our customers are primarily based in the maritime hubs of North-West Europe, as well as in Athens, New York and Singapore.

While shipping is a relatively clean means of transportation, the volume of cargo being moved globally has an impact. The energy transition and emission reduction are major global priorities, and with a focus on sustainability, we share our knowledge and expertise in seeking solutions to these challenges. NIBC is a frontrunner, for example, via the Green Deal within the Dutch maritime industry, and we take our role in the supply chain seriously.

Talent Program  

Every year, we offer a select group of talented colleagues from the entire bank a spot in our Talent Program. You could be part of this program, too! In this program, you and your fellow trainees (a diverse and international group) will focus on personal and professional development. Working and learning-on-the-job is alternated with targeted training and development activities both developed in cooperation with top ranked business partners. Learning on the job is key in this process, you will be challenged with many hands-on exercises and cases to develop your personal and professional skills.

“Working at NIBC means that I am able to make an impact from day one. I am challenged and given various responsibilities very early in my career, meaning that the learning curve is steep but also that the work is exciting. I feel supported by my colleagues who share their knowledge with me daily and who recognize my achievements. The Talent Program represents yet another opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture of NIBC, to build your entrepreneurial skills through the Sustainability Challenge and to have a lot of fun with your fellow analysts.“
