Malin, why did you choose TNG as your recruitment partner for your International Trainee Programme?
One of the reasons was that TNG has a modern and unbiased recruitment process – which is in line with SEB’s inclusion and diversity policy. For example, all applicants takes digital tests relevant to the job, before an unbiased selection is done. All based on the overall application where who is applying or where they have studied are looked at separately.
How has TNG contributed to a better recruitment experience for your candidates?
I think the speed of inviting the chosen candidates for an interview and then early on inform whether they are relevant for the role or not is very valuable. And also that the candidates can track their own application and see exactly where they are in the recruitment process.
Why is an unbiased recruitment important for SEB?
We at SEB are convinced that inclusion and diversity are crucial for long term success, innovation and growth. To deliver world class service to our customers and the society. SEB should be a place where everyone is looking forward to come to work every day and where everyone is valued and respected no matter their personal identity. All our employees should have the same possibilities to reach their full potential.
What makes SEB an unusually good employer?
A lot of things! First of all – all our fantastic colleagues here at SEB and the incredible nice and warm culture. I also want to highlight our internal university – SEB Campus. A digital learning platform where all employees and talents have the possibility to continuously take new trainings and also get official university points. For us at SEB – continuous learning is a part of our culture and something we want all our employees to set aside time to.
Something that I am very proud of as a SEB employee myself, is our proactively social responsibility. SEB has already since the company was founded more than 160 years ago played an active role in the development of our society. We contribute with financial contributions and support companies, entrepreneurs and innovative startups with focus on sustainability.
