Business Consultant

40 WO Amsterdam

Do you have experience with working in project teams, extensive knowledge of data landscapes and relevant experience in the financial sector? We're hiring a Business Consultant for our client, a leading financial institution with its HQ's in Amsterdam.

The Central Portfolio Management unit (part of Corporate & Institutional Banking) uses advanced credit risk models for risk assessment, business steering and regulatory capital calculation. The Model Management team is responsible for these advanced credit risk models. Currently, the landscape is undergoing a lot of changes to make models compliant with new regulations. Models are being redeveloped and reviewed in multi-disciplinary teams involving resources from various departments.

Do you appreciate the importance of high quality models based on reliable data? Are you keen to bring the models and underlying data to a structurally higher level? Are you able to lead a team of experts to achieve agreed objectives? If so, then the role of Business Consultant CIB Model Landscape would be an interesting job for you!

The role will give you the chance to develop yourself, both professionally and personally. Why not get in touch? We’d be interested to hear more about you!

Your job

As Business Consultant CIB Model Landscape, you will make a vital contribution to redevelop credit risk models in compliance with regulations and to ensure the availability and quality of the underlying data, both for model redevelopments and for model reviews.

You will use your experience, knowledge and skills to work with Modelling, the Risk Data & Modelling grid, and Corporate Data Office to meet the specified goals within agreed timelines. You will involve experts from respective CIB sectors where relevant. With these experts you will participate in a number of multi-disciplinary teams for the models in scope. Activities include the assessment of data requirements, data definitions, checks against regulations and business needs, and participation in frequent modeling workshops.

Because the department is bringing the models and underlying data to a structurally higher level, you and your colleagues will be actively working to improve the process where necessary. Autonomous cooperation based on an agile approach will be the key to success.

Given the importance the regulatory authorities ascribe to risk management (modelling, external reports, internal audits) and the data underpinning it, this is a challenging role with a potentially heavy workload.

Your working environment

The Central Portfolio Management team consists of 10-15 experts (end state YE2020), 4 expert leads and the Head of CPM. The team is part of the Structured Finance & Portfolio Management department within Corporate & Institutional Banking and will reflect a diverse range of professional and personal backgrounds. The team is at the centre of CIB’s capital efficient strategy, being responsible for capital allocation, data & model management, performance management & analytics, and active portfolio steering.

You will work in Central Portfolio Management as part of the Model & Data Management cluster. The Data & Model Management cluster is a knowledge centre of credit risk rating models used by CIB. The Model Landscape is currently undergoing a lot of changes to comply with new regulations. Changes and developments in models are important because of implications on the RWA and CIB’s performance.

You will closely cooperate with expert leads within CPM, commercial staff within the CIB Lending Businesses, as well as on a regular basis with central functions such as Modelling, the Risk Data & Modelling grid, Corporate Data Office, Financial Restructuring & Recovery and other grids responsible for sourcing modelling data.

Your profile

You have a proactive, hands-on mentality. Client focus is the main driver behind your work within the team. You have a strong drive to meet the project objectives within the agreed timelines. You’re energised by transferring your expertise to others and at the same time interested in what you can learn from colleagues with other forms of expertise. You are keen to actively contribute to further developing and improving the area you work in.

If you think this sounds like you, check to see whether your profile matches the following:

  • You are educated at university level;
  • 5 years of financial services or relevant work experience;
  • Experience with working in project teams;
  • You have an affinity with data, modelling and risk management;
  • You are keen to broaden and deepen your knowledge of data, modelling, process and consultancy;
  • You embrace the agile way of working, being teamwork-, innovation- and goal-orientated;
  • You have the capacity to challenge your stakeholders and get to the "question behind the question".

And further…

Work in a dynamic, internationally oriented business environment. CIB’s clients operate in markets world-wide that are in the headlines of world business news on a daily basis. You will be given sufficient scope to contribute to value creation for the CIB model landscape. There are plenty opportunities to demonstrate your project management, communication and analytical skills. You will be given the opportunity to further deepen your expertise and/or broaden your role. There is room for individual growth in line with the CIB strategic targets. Working conditions are flexible.


All in all, a challenging and interesting position within a dedicated and professional team with international scope. An opportunity to ignite your career within an international financial institution.
