Project Manager

As a Project Manager, you can make a difference by managing one or more work stream(s) within the R4 Programme. This programme takes the global Rabobank organisation through one of the biggest transitions ongoing in the financial industry: the replacement of several key interest rate benchmark indices.
Making a difference
  • As Project Manager, you will be responsible for the successful execution of a portion of the overall R4 Programme
  • You drive the planning and execution cycle for your work stream

With each other
Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. Our R4 programme team is part of the Treasury department but has a Group-wide mandate. It brings talented people together to accompany the organisation through the transition from current benchmark rates (like LIBOR and EONIA) to alternative or reformed benchmarks. With you as Project Manager, the team will consist of diverse colleagues in a variety of roles, including a programme director, data analysts and several other project managers. The team is highly motivated and driven to achieve the programme objectives with full commitment and integrity.

Raymond Monnik, Project Manager, “It is not often that you get the chance to be part of a programme of such magnitude and impact across the organisation. It is a rare opportunity and I really feel I contribute to the bank’s future. On top of that it is a true pleasure to work in this environment where we combine strong professional expertise with great team ethics”.
With you
