Business Data Modeller for Risk & Finance Data (FRIM)

Do you see the importance of high quality and understandable data? Are you committed to accurately define the data requirements of Risk Management and supplying them together with various business players within ABN AMRO? Are you, like us, keen to bring risk data management to a structurally higher level? And do you have good ideas about how this should be done? If so, then the role of Business Data Modeller for Risk Data & Modelling is an interesting job for you!

The role gives you the chance to develop yourself fully, both professionally and personally. Tell us your story. We are curious!

Your job

As Business Data Modeller you will be working within this international bank, supporting the Risk Management organisation in its data management responsibilities. You will help Risk Management to describe knowledge about data in a Business Data Model, which you can consider as a combination of a business glossary containing business meaningful terms and definitions using the natural language of Finance & Risk, and a graph network showing how terms relate to each other in the business context.

You will support various teams in translating the Risk stakeholder data requirements into detailed data requirements in line with the BCBS 239 principles. You will assess these requirements against the terms and definitions in the Business Data Model and ensure that our Finance & Risk common language remains up to date. You do this by working closely with subject matter experts and analysing existing documents and policies to extract relevant knowledge to be captured in the Business Data Model. You also map the data requirements to the terms and definitions for the relevant Risk stakeholders in accordance with the specifications and the agreed timelines. Because we are bringing the risk data management process to a structurally higher level, you and your colleagues will be actively working to improve the process where necessary. Autonomous cooperation based on an agile approach will be the key to success.

Given the importance the regulatory authorities ascribe to risk management (risk modelling, external reports, internal audits) and the data underpinning it, this is a challenging role with a potentially heavy workload.

Your working environment

The Risk Data & Modelling grid is part of Risk Data & Analytics (RDA), and plays an active role for all the Risk departments. We employ 80-100 staff, all of whom share a passion for getting the most out of risk data. Our aim is to generate reliable risk data in good time. We do this by improving the risk data itself, data systems and data processes.

You will work in the Risk Data & Modelling department within the Data Compliance and Strategy cluster. The team consists of professionals with different backgrounds and driven to bring risk data management to a higher level at a structural level. Because the department is still under development, you will be expected to actively contribute to the strategy for improving the working method. The atmosphere is open and informal. We work hard, but there’s plenty of room for enjoyment!

Your profile

You have proven ability in working with business subject matter experts, business glossaries, facilitating workshops,  consultancy skills and communication skills. You have a drive to extend and learn new knowledge about Risk and are keen on getting to deeper understanding of the subject matter knowledge. You also have the drive to learn and apply Business Data Modelling and other data management capabilities. You understand what you know and what you don’t know and look for the right answer to bring the value we are looking for.

You are energetic, with a passion for combining thinking and doing. You know what is going on within the organisation. Client focus is the main driver behind your work within the team. You take responsibility. As well as having a strong drive to keep your own expertise up-to-date, you’re keen to actively contribute to further developing and improving the field you work in. You’re energised by transferring your expertise to others and are interested in what you can learn from colleagues with other expertise.
If you think this sounds like you, check to see if your profile matches the following:

•    You have a completed university education (preferably an alpha and beta coordinating program)
