Get your career off to a flying start!

Are you eager to learn, do you want responsibility at an early stage in your career and do you want to make an impact in the Public Sector? We are looking for new talented colleagues who want to combine their quantitative and finance skills with consultancy. 

What you can expect

  • A spot in the Zanders Talent Program to develop your soft skills and substantive knowledge with your class of new colleagues.

  • The chance to establish yourself as an expert in your field of expertise.

  • The chance to work with a variety of clients and consultants to quickly acquire new skills.

  • An ambitious and entrepreneurial organisation that encourages, motivates and puts its people first.

Your role

As a Consultant you will be challenged to advise our clients in the Public Sector on for example an ALM study, data analysis, modelling, setting up a new fund for a province or calculating Value-at-Risk. In addition you will assist our Solutions team with the various models we are building for the Public Sector.

You will be working in our 'Public Sector' team, a team of 20 Treasury, Finance and Risk Consultants, with different backgrounds, who have an absolute fascination with numbers. The team works closely together on assignments for different sub-sectors, with a variety of projects in treasury, risk, and finance. Our Public Sector team serves its clients in different ways, a large part of which consists of advisory projects; in addition to advisory projects, we have interim projects, in which you work more regularly at the client's premises. The consultancy projects are generally done in small teams. In that way, we can learn from each other and there is always someone available for the client to know all the ins and outs. We have projects varying from very short (one day) to several years.

Furthermore, as a starting consultant you will be included in our Zanders Talent Program. This program includes substantive training, consultancy skills training and training to obtain or increase your CFA level.

Skills to be successful

  • Completed Master's degree in econometrics, quantitative finance or related topics.

  • A strong interest in developing, designing, and performing the quantification of risk.

  • The ambition to assist the Public Sector through numbers and modelling. The models we build help our clients to make the right choices. You will give insight in the risks of decisions to be taken by our clients.

  • Strong knowledge of Excel and programming tools.

  • Ambitious, strategic thinker, team player and flexible to travel.

  • Fluent in Dutch and English.

What we offer in return

At Zanders you will of course enjoy attractive conditions of employment: a good salary, a nice number of holidays, mobility budget and a Zanders bonus scheme. But there is more to look forward to.

Will you be working at Zanders? Then we will offer you:

  • A good balance between work and free time in combination with a healthy work from home ethics and wellness policy.

  • A brand new office is located next to the Central Station Utrecht and is easily accessible by public transport.

  • An ambitious, service-driven work environment where innovation is the key.

  • A role with a lot of entrepreneurship, responsibility, autonomy and the possibility to develop yourself further in Treasury, Risk and Finance.

  • And on top of it, enthusiastic and helpful colleagues, good coffee, an annual Zanders trip to a (surprise) location in Europe and other social activities!
