At a glance

We are looking for a Project Manager for the Credit Risk Forward Program (CRFP) to join the Credit Risk Requirements Setting team  in ABN AMRO’s Model Ownership & Data Management Department (MODM). MODM is one of the six departments within the Credit Risk organization. The main role of the MODM department is to set the requirements for all the aspects of the model life cycle and act as owner of credit risk models and RWA oversight from a 2nd Line of Defense perspective. Within the MODM department our Credit Risk Requirements Setting team is responsible for setting the requirements and the data definitions for the calculation of credit risk metrics and for several other regulatory requirements across the Credit Risk Life Cycle (like monitoring of exposures, obligors, group of connected clients, credit approval, portfolio monitoring). The team comprises +/- 12 FTE’s permanent staff and 8 FTE’s temporary staff.

Your job

You have the opportunity to take the day to day responsibility for the project management activities of the Credit Risk Forward Program (CRFP) which is leading the drafting of requirements documentation on a wide range of topics across the Credit Life Cycle (rating assignment, connected clients, group support, credit risk reporting, etc). In light of arrears in requirements setting as well as a rapidly changing regulatory landscape, the CRFP acts as a catalyst for this change and is also instrumental in the remediation of ECB obligations.

As Project Manager of the Credit Risk Forward Program you will report to the Team Lead Credit Risk Requirements Setting and you will be responsible for the management of the overall project. The activities of the CRFP are structured in work packages, and the way of working is a semi-sprint based approach. Your job will include reviewing and making proposals for improving the existing program governance framework, drafting the plans for the overall program and the different working packages, pro-actively identify, document and manage the risks and dependencies in the execution of the plans, monitor the execution of the plan and report on it at different level of details.

You will be operating in a challenging environment of fast pace developments, managing relations and dependencies with a diversified group of stakeholders and with other bank-wide projects. You will report and communicate on the CRFP progress internally to the team and to Senior Management and other stakeholders.

Working environment

The MODM department comprises of five teams, focusing on the ownership of pillar I credit risk models, RWA and Segmentation Implementation, Requirements Setting and organizing Data Management. MODM is part of the Credit Risk division, which form the 2nd Line of Defense of credit risk management. Within the Credit Risk division, MODM is one of the shared capabilities, which means that we are aiming to share knowledge with other departments.

The Credit Risk Requirement Settings team works closely with the departments responsible for credit risk management (both first and second line of defense), for policies, with Modelling and Regulatory Model Management, with the IT departments executing the implementation (several GRIDs) and the supervising authorities such as internal Audit and DNB/ECB. The team creates a wide range of documents like solutions and documentation for the remediation of regulatory obligations, new requirements standards and continuous review and update of the existing ones. The materials created by the team are with Senior Management such as MT Credit Risk, Group Risk Committee (GRC), Methodology Acceptance Group (MAG), as well as with other key internal and external stakeholders, in particular the ECB.

Within the MODM department, professionals can grow and develop further. Since the department is in building-up phase, it is appreciated when you actively contribute to improving the way of working. Different views are valued and respected and it is encouraged to provide a new perspective. The atmosphere is open and informal and we are willing to help each other.
