Work and pleasure
The things I like the most about my job are the people, the inclusive and supportive corporate culture and the opportunity to grow professionally while protecting the bank from Money Laundering & Terrorism Financing, Seher Fazliolu.

Your main responsibilities
Lead several 4 Compliance Model Validators in scoping, planning, and executing the model validations & reviews on the Transaction Monitoring Models for our Retail Netherlands and Wholesale & Rural practices. This involves cooperating with fellow team members, leading a group of consultants and liaising with stakeholders across all lines of responsibility.
Secure the timely delivery and overall quality of the deliverables. You do this while promoting teamwork based on building on each others strengths and supporting opportunities to grow.
Provide advice at your discretion to developers and the business when it comes to the models in your area of expertise. You keep up-to-date on current developments in the field and incorporate this in our way-of-working.

Together we achieve more than alone
We believe in the power of difference. Bringing together people's differences is what makes us an even better bank. So we are very curious about what you can bring to our Compliance Model Validation Team. Together, we challenge the fit-for-purpose of the models that are developed and used by the first line of responsibility. Through our model validations and reviews, we contribute to a transparent risk profile that gives senior management the opportunity to effectively manage compliance risks with a forward-looking mind-set.
Working in this diverse, smart and ambitious team with a common mission to help protect the bank, the financial system and, by extension, society at large against financial crime gives me tremendous energy.
Willem van Willigen.

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 us: 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.
