Your job

Your focus will be on the economic implications of climate changes and the policies to mitigate it. To this end, you will be centrally involved in building climate and transition scenarios (with a focus on modelling the impact on the economy) and adapting these scenarios and their probability based on new developments and research. This will involve working closely together with the economists and strategists within the team and wider group to inform our big picture scenarios.

You will provide analysis, publications, products and presentations on these themes for external clients, such as companies and investors, and internal clients, such as our risk, finance, strategy and sustainability departments.

You will be part of the Sustainability Research team that operates from our head office in Amsterdam.

Working environment

The Sustainability Research team, which is part of Group Economics, is expanding its business. Our footprint is growing quickly within ABN AMRO as well as outside the bank. Our mission is to provide research and scenarios that define the risks and opportunities from climate change and transition policies for the bank and its clients. To this end, we work closely together with the other teams in the department, which focus on the global business cycle, the Dutch economy and financial markets. Sustainability is a key pillar of our bank’s strategy.

Working at ABN AMRO means becoming even better at what you do. We understand clients, translate their ambitions into joint success and thus earn their trust. We want our clients to understand our products. It's why we sometimes say 'no' if the risk attached to a product is too great for the client. Serving the client's interests is also a question of offering – and communicating – a transparent range of products. Banking is our business, the world is our challenge.
