We are looking for a:

Senior Business Consultant (Risk Management) Value Proposition

Do you, like us, have the ambition to structurally bring risk data management to a higher level? And do you have good ideas about how this can best be done? Then Senior Business Consultant is definitely an interesting position for you! 

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

Your job

The Senior Business Consultant is the link between the agile delivery teams and the stakeholders in the field of data, process and risk management related issues. You deal with complex, especially larger strategic initiatives, form your own opinion and seek alignment with other stakeholders in Risk, Finance, Architecture and IT. In addition, you also have an advisory role towards various (Risk) Management Teams.

You are the first point of contact of the Risk Data & Modelling department for regulatory change or larger internal initiatives. You make sure that they land well and on time at the delivery teams. You supervise this process. That is where your added value lies. 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 Senior Business Consultant in the field of risk data management you are familiar with BCBS239 and Data Management best practices (e.g. DAMA DMBOK). But your work involves more than just translating these policies. Your added value is certainly also in the guidance and advice on its practical feasibility. You do this by advising, guiding and supporting data users in making better use of data. But also by supporting delivery teams in drawing up data requirements and data quality requirements. You will contribute to the transition from a report driven to a data driven organization. 

Examples of the work and deliveries of a Senior Business Consultant include:

  • Drafting the (data) architecture and design for an integrated finance & risk data environment.
  • Monitor that the delivery teams implement in line with the agreed architecture 
  • Advice and support to the delivery teams on design issues
  • An impact analysis of new regulatory or internal initiatives; 
  • Maintaining the finance & risk common language;
  • Point of contact for Risk Management regarding data for business initiatives with a risk component, such as Collateral Lifecycle Management. 

Your working environment

You will work in the Value Proposition Team (VPT). This team is part of the Risk Data & Modelling (RD&M) grid. RD&M is part of the Risk Data & Analytics (RD&A) department which falls under Risk Management. The RD&M grid consists of approximately one hundred colleagues who share a passion for getting the most out of risk data. We do this by improving the risk data, the data systems and the data processes.

The Value Proposition Team is the link between the agile delivery teams and the stakeholders and is responsible for developing, guiding and advising on complex, strategic initiatives in the field of risk management, data and process related issues.

The Value Proposition Team (VPT) consists of four colleagues with various backgrounds in risk management, data management, business architecture and process & portfolio management. The team is driven to bring risk data management to a structurally higher level in an international and dynamic environment. 

Your profile

The Senior Business Consultant we are looking for has earned her/his spurs in the areas of risk management, data analytics, data management, data modeling, data architecture and/or portfolio management within a banking or financial organization or within consultancy in these areas.

You are an energetic person with a passion for the combination of thinking and doing. You know what's going on within the organization. Customer perspective is your primary drive to work within the team. You take your responsibility. Not only do you have a strong drive to continuously maintain your own expertise, but you also want to actively contribute to the further development and innovation of the field. In addition, you get energy from transferring your expertise to others and are interested in what you can learn from your colleagues with other areas of expertise.

Do you think you fit in with us? Check your profile:

  • You have a completed HBO or WO education. 
  • At least 5 years of relevant work experience in the field of data, modelling and risk management;
  • You have (demonstrable) affinity with IT;
  • Focused on collaboration, innovation and achieving goals;
  • You embrace the agile way of working;
  • Data driven and innovative;
  • You have the skills to challenge your stakeholders and identify the "question behind the question".

Keywords that you like to see reflected in your work are: data governance, data flows, data process, change management, risk model management (run & development), BCBS239, chain thinking, consultancy skills, flexibility, presentation, down-to-earth, constructive, healthy critical, bank-wide thinking, independent and team player.

What we offer

You get the space to contribute to the value creation from our risk data. We like to learn from your experiences with data value creation and applications of models. You will have the opportunity to deepen your expertise and/or develop yourself in the breadth of the function: from data modeling to datadelivery and from portfolio to data management. There are plenty of career opportunities. This mainly depends on your ambitions and interests. 

In addition, we offer:

  • The ability to work flexibly;
  • An additional benefit budget of 11%, with which you can buy flexible terms of employment (including vacations, contribution to phone, bike or electric bike and additional salary);
  • A personal development budget of € 1,000 per year to save up to € 3,000;
  • A public transport annual subscription;
  • A good pension scheme;
  • A good salary.

At ABN AMRO we put our knowledge, skills and network to work for customers. So that they can achieve their goals based on responsible decisions. In the Netherlands and abroad. The customer's interests always come first. We want our customers to understand our products and sometimes sell 'no' when the risk of a product is too great for a customer. The customer's interest is also: communicating clearly and coming up with smart solutions that really make a difference. That is our goal.

We would like to get to know you!
