You will have an impact
Working for DNB, you will have an impact on financial stability and sustainable prosperity. As a banking supervision specialist business model and profitability risk, you will support DNB in understanding banks’ business models, assess the sustainability of banks’ profitability, and identify new and emerging risks. You will give shape to DNB’s ambition to be a leading forward-looking supervisor. Your expertise has a direct impact on the supervised banks and you will be contributing to their understanding of business model risk.

This is what you will be doing as a banking supervision specialist business model and profitability risk
Your role is to ‘follow the money’ and assess risks to the viability and sustainability of domestic and international banks. You will analyse, amongst others, the structure of the balance sheet, the profit and loss account, the business strategy, financial projections, and relevant developments in the business environment in order to assess the risks in the short and longer term. You will act both as an on-site supervisor as well as an internal DNB expert. You will participate in a range of on-site inspections and internal projects. On-site inspections at individual banks will take up most of your time. You will discuss matters at the highest level with the banks' senior management and management and supervisory board members. You will be working in project teams of varying composition, comprising DNB colleagues and other supervisors working with the ECB's Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM). You will contribute to the development of new assessment frameworks.

You will share your observations with the account supervisors and advise them on the appropriate supervisory strategy.

What exactly does your job involve?

  • Conducting on-site inspections in the Netherlands and abroad.
  • Assessing business model risk at banks based on on-site analyses, desk research, interviews, and financial modelling.
  • Discussing your work at the highest level with the banks' management and supervisory board members, senior management, and other staff members. Probing further to identify and understand the underlying challenges.
  • Providing independent expert advice to DNB’s account supervisors, SSM supervisors and DNB's Executive Board on business model-related matters and the necessary follow-up.
  • Analysing and observing emerging trends (e.g. technological innovation/FinTech and sustainability/climate change) which may point towards new or emerging risks.
  • Sharing your knowledge and observations with your DNB and SSM colleagues, to improve the effectiveness of Dutch and European business model supervision.

This is where you will be working
You will be based in Amsterdam, but your activities as a banking supervision specialist will also include frequent travel abroad. You will be working in the On-Site Supervision and Banking Expertise (OSBE) Division. We carry out our inspections at banks in the Netherlands and elsewhere in the EU and play an expert role for our other banking supervision divisions. You will be working in a team of 12 colleagues within the Business Models & Governance (BMG) department, our expert center for the business models, profitability and governance risk areas. Our working atmosphere is open, friendly and down-to-earth, and we work in project teams of varying composition. This means that we value cooperation and support each other.

Working for the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM)

DNB is an integral part of the SSM, composed of the European Central Bank and national competent authorities of 19 euro area countries. Working for the SSM comprises working for short periods of time abroad in the context of regular business travels, trainings or on-site visits, and for potentially longer periods during on-site inspections. This is an important characteristic of our jobs complemented by an environment in which wellbeing/work-life balance is enabled. Working for the SSM also implies collaborating in multi-national and -cultural teams and in the context of different national frameworks. Therefore a strong ability to use other EU working languages for business purposes is an asset.

At DNB you will be working together with other professionals with high-caliber skills and expertise. We need you to be decisive and rational, and have strong analytical skills. You must also have solid influencing and convincing skills. You are good at maintaining professional relationships and have a clear style of communication.

What other competencies are we looking for?

  • You have a University Master's degree in economics, finance, or another relevant field.
  • You have at least three years of relevant work experience, e.g. in the area of business strategy or risk in the financial sector (banks, insurers, pension funds) or with a consultancy firm. Alternatively, you have research experience in the relevant areas.
  • You have an excellent command of English both written and spoken. A sufficient command of Dutch is a plus. If you have no command of Dutch yet, you should be willing to learn the language quickly.
  • You have a good feel for relationships and feel at ease in an intercultural environment.
  • You do not have any problems with travelling frequently.
  • You enjoy understanding and explaining the story behind financial data and are willing to work intensively with forecasting models and scenarios.
