Jolien, Relationship Manager Commercial Banking

I help companies meet the challenges of sustainable development and support them in improving their environmental and social impact. It’s rewarding!

I joined the bank in 2016 via a Talent programme. After an intensive journey of 18 months across different entities, I was ready for the job of Relationship Manager. On a day-to-day basis, I advise companies and meet their needs; I support them in carrying out their projects as well as in their sustainable transition.

BNP Paribas Fortis is very committed to sustainability. To help companies meet the challenges of sustainable development and increase their positive impact, I can call on the specialists of the Sustainable Business Competence Centre, our sustainable development expertise centre. It brings together civil, IT and biochemical engineers who are familiar with new technologies and are also bankers. In fact, the bank is not at all a boring organisation. On the contrary, it's a dynamic environment in which you can learn every day and develop your skills.


Volunteering or donating?
Volunteering. I'm involved in the Ourjob2 programme.(*)

Training or straight into the job?
Training. It's essential to train first and then put into practice what you've learned

All identical or all different?
All different, it's much more interesting. We can learn a lot from others.

Speaker or listener?
Speaker. I like talking to people, I’m quite sociable.

0 or 2,300 unread e-mails?
Zero unread e-mails. I hate it when there are tons of unread e-mails in my mailbox. I’m quite organised.

Your biggest wish?
My wish is to further promote sustainability and responsible leadership. As a bank, we can do even more in these areas.
