Imagine you are able to apply your in-depth knowledge of modelling to perform oversight on the models Rabobank uses to protect itself and society against money laundering, terrorism financing, and breaches of sanctions.

Together with the Global Compliance Model Validation team, you will be responsible for validating these models and their changes from a Compliance perspective, ensuring that their quality is of the highest standards.

  • You provide oversight over the model landscape across the Rabobank Group, including both our Retail and Wholesale & Rural business lines;
  • You pro-actively advise and challenge the business in its modelling activities, striving for the highest standards in model quality, maintenance and change processes;

Jeroen Goudsmit: “Our colleagues in the first line are working on building high-quality models to detect & prevent Compliance risks. Our second-line contribution lies in driving a science-based and honest conversation on the choices that come with that modelling process. I really enjoy the close cooperation within our team, which allows us to perform in-depth analyses on varying types of models and to convey the resulting key risks to senior management.”
