Do you want to make a difference? Do you see the importance of high quality data? Do you, like us, have the ambition to structurally bring Risk data management to a higher level together with great colleagues? Do you have good ideas about how this can best be done? Then Junior Business Consultant Risk Management is definitely an interesting position for you! 

In this role you can develop yourself as professional as well as a person. Tell us your story. We are curious!

Your job

The Junior Business Consultant is the link between the agile delivery teams and the stakeholders in the field of data, process and risk management. Together with your colleagues you deal with complex, especially larger strategic initiatives, form your own opinion based on the strategy of the Bank and Risk Management and seek alignment with other stakeholders in Risk, Finance, the Business Lines, Enterprise Architects and IT. In addition, you also have an advisory role towards various (Risk) Management stakeholders.

You will be part of the team that is the first point of contact of the Risk Data & Modelling department for regulatory-driven changes and larger internal initiatives with a risk data component. Jointly with our colleagues you perform impact analyses of these changes & initiatives. You draft the (data) architecture and design for an integrated finance & risk data environment where these regulatory changes and internal initiatives are incorporated. You advise and support the delivery teams in the implementation hereof. 

You challenge, improve or clarify the desired change. You act as a risk data point of contact in the change process and you step in if the (data) quality is under pressure. Your field of work lies exactly between Risk Management and Data Management and you work closely together with experts in each of these areas. 

As Junior Business Consultant in the field of risk data management you will apply BCBS239 and Data Management best practices (e.g. DAMA DMBOK). But your work involves more than just translating these policies. Your added value lies certainly also in providing guidance and advice on their practical feasibility. You do this by advising, guiding and supporting data users in making better use of data. You will contribute to the transition from a report driven to a data driven organization. 

Examples of the deliverables to which a Junior Business Consultant contributes include:
•    Clear problem statements related to regulatory and internal change initiatives;
•    Business analyses focused on data related business processes, data needs and data capabilities;
•    Approved solution intents including these business analyses;
•    Roadmaps and migration strategies;
•    Vision documents and guidelines.

Working environment

You will work in the Value Proposition Team (VPT). This team is part of the Risk Data & Modelling (RD&M) grid. The Risk Data & Modelling grid is part of Risk Data & Analytics (RDA) and plays an active role for all the Risk departments. We employ 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.

The VPT team consists of three colleagues with various backgrounds in risk management, data management, business architecture and process & portfolio management. The team is part of the Data Compliance and Strategy cluster within the RD&M grid. The cluster consists of international professionals with different backgrounds who are driven to bring risk data management to structurally higher level. The atmosphere is dynamic, open and informal. We work hard, but there’s plenty of room for enjoyment!
