As we manage one of the world’s largest and most progressive investment funds, our talent programme offers exciting career opportunities and an excellent environment for professional development and growth.
Our success relies on employing the best people in the business in our ongoing mission of safeguarding and building wealth for future generations in Norway. The purpose of the programme is to attract and retain the best and most diverse talent possible. We seek individuals with the aptitude, drive and personality to take on roles and responsibilities that will be key to the development and success of our organisation.
The talent programme is a two-year rotational development opportunity, initially based in Oslo but with the chance of working in one of our international offices and secondment to other investment organisations. Candidates with high performance in the programme may also be eligible for sponsored education.
Our graduate positions offer wide-ranging personal and professional development opportunities in various roles across the organisation, including investment management, risk management, compliance, corporate governance and IT. As part of the programme, you will receive comprehensive training and development, a corporate mentor and a ‘buddy’ to support you in your role.
We are looking for talented people from a range of backgrounds, with different mindsets and who are comfortable in taking risks. We strive to have an environment where we do not fear failure, as failure helps us learn and improve. We look for and celebrate diversity – the more diverse we are, the more creative we can be and the better the results we can achieve.
This programme is for final year students who have:
• Initiative, curiosity and a desire to learn
• A keen interest in the fund and a career here
• Understanding of the fund’s mission and mandate, its importance to the Norwegian people and how you can support this
• A strong team mindset
• A high degree of flexibility and an international mindset
• Resilience and ability to take risks
