In my current rotation as financial analyst within the automotive business unit, I enjoy being part of a fast-moving industry where the demand for adaptability is high. Finance professionals need to be able to work in a similar fashion, always looking out how to improve their processes, with the use of best-in-class tooling and by applying automation.

The greatest thing about the program is the freedom it gives to the graduates to move around within the different finance departments and draw their own future rather than follow prescribed career paths. It is surprising how flexible and open-minded a large company like TomTom can be, in terms of giving space and voice to the graduates.
