Recruitment process

What happens when you have sent us your application and CV?


First interview

When we have read all the applications, we typically invite three to five candidates for the first interview. Here you will meet the recruiting manager so that you can get to know each other, and you, the candidate, can learn more about the job content. That way, both you and Nykredit can assess whether the job requirements and content match your qualifications, skills and expectations.


In the first interview, we will tell you more about:

  • Job content, areas of responsibility and opportunities
  • Nykredit as a workplace and our culture


You will be able to:

  • Introduce yourself and elaborate on your application and CV
  • Explain your motivation for lodging your application
  • Get answers to your questions about the job and about Nykredit

Test and in-depth interview

On the basis of the first interview, we typically invite two to three candidates for further testing on an individual basis, depending on the relevant position. The purpose is to get an impression of your profile and personal preferences when working. 

The testing will be followed by an in-depth interview based on the test. At this interview, we will also discuss pay and employment conditions with you, and you will have an opportunity to ask further questions about the job.



Please note that if we are considering you for the job, we will, with your permission, in most cases ask for references from previous employers. 



The successful candidate will be informed orally. Shortly after you have accepted our job offer, you will receive your employment contract.



If you are not invited for an interview, you will receive a rejection letter.

If you have been interviewed or tested, you will receive oral feedback.


How do we process your personal data in the recruitment process?


When you apply for a position with the Nykredit Group, you apply electronically via Nykredit's HR system, where you upload your application, CV and any other documents (examination papers, recommendations etc). During this process, your documents will be shared securely with the recruiting manager and, if relevant, a recruitment partner.

When the position has been filled, we will shred any printed material used in the recruitment process, and your digital documents will be deleted when your profile has been inactive for six months.


If you are invited to a personal interview at Nykredit based on your application, please note that Nykredit uses digital personality tests and/or proficiency tests in the last phase of the process to uncover your professional and personal skills.

Tests are stored with Nykredit's external test providers, which will destroy them after six months.

"We invest in dialogue and time with candidates. This one sentence sums up Nykredit's recruitment process. It is our ambition that the candidate sees us as professional, flexible and attentive – throughout the process. Ultimately, it is about making sure that the candidates we are in contact with have a positive experience – and then finding the best possible match for the candidate and Nykredit, of course"
