It is vital for us that the non-financial risks are under control, so that Nordea remains as a safe and trusted bank for our customers and society. Would you like to be part of making this happen?

Welcome to Group Business Support (GBS), an organization that drives optimization of our operational efficiencies, allowing Business Areas to focus on what they do best: to serve our customers and drive income growth initiatives.

Take a sneak peek here and look how graduate life looks like at Nordea.

The graduate programme is designed to kickstart your career. The programme is for 2 years starting in September 2022, and you will have rotations during this time with clear learning objectives to support your growth and define your path to a successful career.

Management Support works closely with the executive management in GBS and across the bank. In our team, we facilitate key executive forums and drive various strategic assignments and deliveries, which can range from data to technology and workplace management.
