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 their efforts to minimize the risk of errors relating to data in the design, implementation and use of models. These models are developed using techniques varying from business rules to machine learning components. You provide independent opinion on the risks associated with the usage of model in accordance with internal and external requirements. This involves taking the lead on second-line analyses on topics such as data lineage and data quality, model methodology, model performance and its implementation, discussing these with your colleagues, and summarizing your conclusions in a formal opinion. You engage developers and managers in the first line of responsibility across the globe to challenge their approach and provide recommendations on resolving identified weaknesses.

Together we achieve more together 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 at Compliance Model Validation.

 ‘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.’
