  • 36 hours
  • Full time

As a Transaction Monitoring Analytics Lead you make societal impact, by helping our team members to get the best out of themselves in developing detection models processing Rabobank’s transactions of 8+ million customers to catch the criminals.

You and your job
Preventing Money Laundering & Terrorist Financing is one of the key aspects for our society and our organisation, and as a bank we play a major role in this field. The Transaction Monitoring (TM) team optimizes our current TM system and will introduce more advanced analytics methodologies such as Machine Learning into our TM models. You will be responsible for building a team with the capabilities, skills, and culture to make this happen. Additionally, you are part of the larger Advanced Analytics Community within Rabobank which you can build on and contribute to, for example for acceleration of learning and development.

Our Area/department is organized in >15 multidisciplinary squads filled with ambitious, smart, and motivated professionals. We are proud to operate as one TM team across these squads, for which it is key that the management team sets the right example. As part of the management team of our Area/department, you will be in a leading role to encourage the team members to get the best out of themselves and each other and you make sure the new colleagues we recruit have the mindset, knowledge, and skills we need. Your focus with coaching will be on a subset of team members reporting to you hierarchically, who are working across multiple squads. However, with all other responsibilities (e.g., coordinating onboarding, recruitment, trainings, development frameworks, etc.) we expect you to work with the rest of the management team on behalf of the entire Area/department. Additionally, it is important to realize that you will be responsible for the recruitment and development of those team members who report to you, but not for the results they deliver. The Product Managers and Product Owners are responsible for delivering committed milestones, and the Analytics Leads are responsible for ensuring the Product Managers and Product Owners have the right people with the right capabilities to do so.

Practical Examples

As a TM Analytics Lead you will:

  • Coach and support your direct reports to find and seize the best opportunities to develop themselves and thrive within our TM team
  • Optimize our recruitment process and build and maintain relations with suppliers to ensure we add the best suitable candidates to our team
  • Identify current and/or future skills gaps in the team and organize a training to help the team members grow and develop

Facts & Figures

  • 36/40 hours per week
  • 15+ direct reports in Analytics to inspire and coach on their Rabobank journey (Data Scientists, Data Analysts and Analytics Translators)
  • 2 other Analytics Leads to collaborate with, within the same TM team
  • 43,822 Rabobank colleagues around the world

Top 3 responsibilities

  • Take full HR responsibility for 15+ FTE: recruitment, hard and soft skill development, performance review, and wellbeing
  • Function as part of the Area/department management team and ensure working conditions are optimal for the entire team  (e.g., ensuring important processes are well structured, organized and scalable)
  • Develop and implement a long term strategy for team culture and learning & development for our multi-disciplinary TM team

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 team in the Tribe FEC Tech.
