Do you want to work agile within Risk Management, taking on an important area of attention for ABN AMRO?

What are you looking for? Work on your goals and your professional and personal development. Tell us your story. We cannot wait to hear from you!

Your job

You will be part of a team of experts within the Operational Risk domain: the PERDARR Independent Validation Unit. The PERDARR principles (issued by the Basel Committee) are guidelines for governance and IT infrastructure, risk data aggregation capabilities and risk reporting practices. Adherence to the principles and structural improvements in the quality of finance and risk data aggregation and reporting is commissioned by the Executive Committee. The primary purpose of the Independent Validation Unit is to ensure that the Bank’s risk data aggregation and reporting processes are functioning as intended and are appropriate for the Bank’s risk profile. Activities of the Unit are a part of ABN AMRO’s goal of being “in control”, worldwide. This means, you will be in contact with both Head Office departments and international teams. Main activity of the team is ensuring ongoing validation of ABN AMRO’s key risk reports and the surrounding governance processes, on multiple organizational levels and for all main risk types – credit risk, market risk, liquidity risk, interest rate risk and operational risk. In addition, you will cooperate with operational risk teams to ensure that recommended controls are implemented in business as usual practice. You will interact with a broad range of internal stakeholders as well as with the external regulator on a frequent basis.

Your working environment

The past years the ORM department has built and implemented a robust risk and control framework conform the Advanced Measurement Approach. Our next step? The transfer from ‘instrument management’ to ‘true risk management’. In this way we can discuss the risks that truly matter. We want to achieve this by working in a flexible organization with people who are results oriented, focused on working together and willing to adapt to the rapidly changing world.  We strive for diversity in “People, Talent & Drive”. This is also reflected in our core values: “Relevant, Together and Confident”. We believe in results that are built on the talents of individual colleagues within the team. Empower, help and challenge each other!

You respect others and their opinion, and stand for who you are, and are confident that as an individual you can add value to the whole. With “Talent” as a starting point we build teams where people complete each other, from the pragmatist to the theorist, from the silent thinker to the active negotiator and from knowledge driven to context manager. Together we have a wide range of skills, in-depth knowledge of the bank and of risk management. Our colleagues know their own talents and drivers and know how to use these to achieve resultsThey also know what energizes them and pass along this energy to the rest of the team.Check your profile. Do you see a fit with us? We would like to get to know you.
