Your key strengths?

  • You already have experience and education in IT. Thanks to your background, you quickly make yourself familiar with the business and IT processes at KBC Asset Management.
  • Your greatest strengths are your analytical skills and ability to think conceptually. You have no problem comparing alternative solutions to each other and working with business stakeholders to come to well-thought-out decisions that are in line with the strategy.
  • You’re motivated by responsibility, take initiative and work constructively with everyone.
  • You’re open minded. Learning something extra and attempting to do things better? You wouldn’t have it any other way.
  • You have strong communication skills.

What can you expect in first weeks/months?

  • Introduction plan and cooperation with the teamleader/manager
  • You will have a buddy – senior colleague supporting you in KBC within first months
