Junior Finance Consultant
Do you want to work for one of the best consultancy firms right in the centre of Utrecht? And how about working on projects for big players in the financial sector, such as ING, ABN AMRO, or Rabobank? We offer a tailored three-year program in which you get to create an impact both in and outside our organisation. Curious to see what life is like as a consultant? We’d love to tell you more about it.
What you’ll do
As a junior finance consultant, you’ll directly support tons of important financial processes within the customer environment. By diving right in, you’ll quickly learn more about business operations in the financial sector. From here on, you’ll delve deeper into the work and eventually fulfil an advisory role for one of our partners. What partners exactly? Think leading financial organisations: banks, insurance companies and pension funds.
Alongside more experienced consultants, you’ll be working on short-term projects. Together, you’ll solve complex financial (data) issues, optimise reports, or make proposals for improvement. New laws and regulations, process optimisation, and data quality will be subjects you’ll specialise in.
The projects you’ll work on will last 6 to 9 months on average. During the program, you’ll be aided and advised by a talent manager and a senior consultant; tackling both professional and personal growth. You’ll develop professionally, fine-tune your consultancy skills, and receive coaching for the practical assignments. This multi-faceted approach ensures that you can quickly grow as a professional and, by doing so, also continue to challenge and develop yourself.
With our 3-year consultancy program and the broad range of projects accompanying it, you’ll obtain a solid all-around basis to help you become a full-fledged consultant.
During year 1 and 2, we carve out the foundation with specialisation following in year 3. After the three-year program, you can then take on the consultancy labels within our parent company, The Hup:
- RiskSphere: focuses on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG).
- Tech Solutions: Data analysis and visualisation & process automation (RPA).
- Data-driven Finance & Risk: Law and regulation, project management, and process optimisation.
- Managing consultant: leading, coaching, and guiding young people within the consultancy program.
Who you are
- A university degree in Finance, Business Economics or Accountancy or a Higher Professional Education in Finance or Economics with either one year of work experience, part-time job experience or a relevant internship.
- Affinity with the financial sector.
- You are driven, proactive, stress-resistant and a go-getter.
- You are an analytical genius – numbers are your best friends.
- You have great communication skills, are positive, and can be persuasive.
Why work as a consultant at Solid Professionals?
Working at leading financial organisations
You will work on various assignments with well-known players in the financial sector. Each new assignment will help you grow your talent, challenge your intellect, and help you build a network - all at the same time.
Space for creativity and entrepreneurship
Can you spot an opportunity from a mile away? And is your mind filled to the brim with all kinds of great ideas? These are some of the skills that we love. At Solid Professionals, you’re given the freedom to explore these ideas and opportunities. We promote creativity and entrepreneurship by allowing our employees to take ownership and explore these plans further, from concept to realisation.
A close-knit team of consultancy professionals
When working on an assignment, you are heavily involved with our partners. However, Solid Professionals will always be your home. That means you have a huge variety of projects, but you also have your regular team to fall back on and share knowledge and experiences with.
What you’ll get
- A 3-year training program with personal guidance to further optimise your consultancy skills (Lean Six Sigma en Power BI, for example).
- Good performance is rewarded, and we offer excellent career opportunities.
- A great salary and variable bonus.
- A laptop, phone, and travel budget.
- Dynamic and international working environment,
- A close-knit team who won’t shy away from having a drink or going out to dinner together.
- As a colleague, you can also become a shareholder and get your fair share of profits.
What can you expect?
When working as a junior finance consultant, you’ll get the best of both worlds. On the one hand, you’ll get a taste of the dynamics of various leading organisations in the financial sector. On the other hand, you’ll have a permanent home base with the chance to build real relationships with your colleagues.
That combination makes working as a finance consultant at Solid Professionals different to any other company. You don’t see each other every day, but the time we spend together is real quality time. Plus, we regularly have fun drinks, and every year we have a weekend outing with the entire team! Will we see you there next time?
Would you rather specialise directly within one department? Then our 1 to 2-year Traineeship Finance might be something for you!
Not your average employer
Solid Professionals isn’t your average employer. We are convinced organisations are built by the people who work for them, which leads us to believe that we need to help our employees achieve their full potential.
Your development and happiness at work are our priority. Solid Professionals sees your creativity and ideas as opportunities and strengths.
We believe in long-term relationships based on trust, in which we work together toward durable solutions. We are involved, knowledgeable, and love to be challenged. Mistakes are part of the learning process. And, not to be forgotten, we operate from the conviction that work should make you happy.
As a subsidiary of the Hup, Solid Professionals stand for the same values. One of them is visible in the name of Hup itself, spelt with a P to further underline the importance of people. The ones we work with and the ones we work for. Multiple subsidiaries have been created by our employees with ambition and that entrepreneurial drive. In addition to Solid Professionals, The Hup is also the parent company to DNFS, Amsterdam Data Collective and the Instituut voor Vitaal Ondernemen.
