Your job

You will be part of a dedicated team of experts within the Information and Operational Risk domain: the PERDARR Independent Validation Unit. The PERDARR Principles (BCBS #239) provide banks with guidelines how to organise their governance and IT infrastructure, risk data aggregation capabilities and risk reporting practices. The primary purpose of the Independent Validation Unit is to ensure that these practices are implemented and functioning as intended and are appropriate for the Bank’s risk profile. 
Activities of the IVU are part of ABN AMRO’s goal of being “in control”, worldwide. This means, you will be in contact with a multitude of stakeholders from Head Office departments, subsidiaries and international teams, as well as with senior management and the external regulator on a frequent basis. The IVU performs validation assignments on ABN AMRO’s key risk reports, surrounding governance processes & IT infrastructure and programs that enable compliancy with the PERDARR Principles. You do this on multiple organizational levels and for all main risk types – credit risk, market risk, liquidity risk, interest rate risk, compliance risk and operational risk. In addition, you will help to ensure that recommended controls are implemented in business as usual practice. To complement the IVU team, we specifically seek someone with experience in the field of data management.
