Are you an experienced Compliance professional with an interest in the fast-paced world of KYC models? And can you apply your in-depth knowledge of FEC to challenge their design, implementation & use?

You and your job

As a Compliance Model Validator you perform oversight on the models that the bank uses to protect itself and society against compliance risks such as money laundering, terrorism financing, and breaches of sanctions. As a gatekeeper to the financial system, the bank crucially relies on the quality of its models to prevent and detect compliance risks. You will help to independently assess such models and to challenge the decisions taken by their owners and developers.

Fine working relationship

  • in the team Compliance Model Validation
  • together with 12 direct colleagues
  • 36 hours per week


An average working day

Are you curious about what would be on your to-do list on an average working day? For instance you pro-actively advise and challenge the business in its activities to maintain & monitor its models, focusing on whether these models adequately mitigate the Compliance risks in scope. This involves taking the lead on second-line analyses, discussing these with your colleagues, and summarizing your conclusions in a formal opinion. You engage developers and managers in the business to challenge their assumptions and to understand the reasoning behind their choices.


Your future colleagues are looking forward to working with you. They will be glad of your help to challenge and advise our first-line colleagues on their models. Working together is the way we work; as 1 caring team. Talking of the bank: We are a Dutch bank that operates in 38 countries for over 9,5000,000 customers. Together with these customers, our members and partners we stand side by side to create a world in which everyone has access to enough healthy food. In the Netherlands we work to create a country in which people are happy with how they live, work and do business.
