Jij hebt impact

You have impact!

Do you want your work to have an impact on financial stability and on the banking sector´s ability to support to sustainable growth? As a credit risk model expert at DNB, you can do so by leveraging on your analytical and (inter)personal skills in a stimulating and professional environment. You will be at the centre of European banking supervision dynamics, and will supervise major Dutch banks. You will be part of an intercultural team of European supervisors, in a changing and challenging environment.

This is how to do that as a credit model expert at DNB

You will work within the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM), where together with your colleagues from the European Central Bank (ECB) and other euro area countries, you will exercise supervision over one of the Dutch systemically important banks. You will be part of the European Joint Supervisory Team (JST), an energetic team of international supervisors. Within the team you will be the specialist on credit risk models according to the advanced internal rating based approach (AIRB); additionally you will deliver state of the art analyses in the areas of internal models and quantitative credit risk management.

What exactly does the position entail?

Your main responsibilities as a model expert will include:

  • You will supervise the bank’s multi-year credit risk model strategy, and assess this against the business model and the group structure of the bank, and continuous evolution of the regulatory framework;
  • Assessing the bank’s applications for material credit risk model changes, by reviewing the methodology and model documentation, data quality, quantitative information and qualitative procedures. Subsequently, you will prepare a Supervisory Decision whether or not to approve the use of this model; 
  • Verify an institution’s ongoing compliance with the regulatory requirements for internal models used to calculate the bank’s minimum capital requirements;
  • You will have discussions with the bank's (senior) management and other staff members. You are capable of probing further to identify and understand the underlying challenges; 
  • You contribute to DNB's digital ambitions, for example by closely monitoring innovative developments in the sector and responding to them in your supervisory activities.

Hier doe je dat

This is where you will be working

As a credit risk modelling expert specialist, you will be based in Amsterdam. DNB is part of the Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM), through which the ECB is ultimately responsible for supervision of all euro area banks.

Working for the SSM means that you will have to regularly travel abroad for training, on-site inspections and other activities. This will be a characteristic element of the job, together with an environment that offers you a good work-life balance.
