Team Lead Hay 13

Are you looking for a challenge leadership role as a bridge between Risk, Business and Modelling? We may be looking for you! We are looking for two team leads for the Model Oversight retail team and the Model Oversight non-retail teams.

Both teams are part of 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 act as owner of credit risk models and RWA oversight from a 2nd Line of Defense perspective. Within the MODM department our Model Oversight teams are responsible for the oversight of the use, implementation and quality of pillar I credit risk models. The two Model Oversight teams are focusing on program lending (“retail”) and non-program lending (“non-retail”) portfolios respectively, in total comprising +/- 15 FTE. You will be leading one of those team based on your vision on the developments in the model landscape and your views on an appropriate organizational-set-up.

Your job

You have the opportunity to lead a Model Oversight team (retail or non-retail) which a.o. represents the model ownership for credit risk models. The team facilitates all necessary activities for Credit Risk to accept this accountability and to ensure that the model life cycle is appropriately followed. This team takes the accountability for credit risk model ownership; keeps oversight on the design, internal and regulatory approval, implementation, use, monitoring and decommissioning of the credit risk models. The models owned are used for regulatory and economic capital calculation, risk based decision making, portfolio management, pricing, and multiple other uses. During the entire model life cycle you are responsible for the oversight of these models, while depending on the phase of the life cycle your role will either lean towards formulating opinions on the quality of models, initiating discussions on necessary changes, or reporting on the state of affairs of the models.

The Model Oversight teams are operating in a challenging environment of fast pace developments in the model landscape to prepare for future regulation and address the concerns with the current implementation. As the team lead, the team will be looking for your guidance and vision on the future development of models and the set-up of the model life cycle. You will represent the team in several meeting-cycles with senior management and bank-wide projects. At the same time you will be organizing the team to become a pro-active model owner that provides sufficient countervailing power to the modelling departments. You will have to find a balance between several interest in the bank that relate to the use and functioning of models.

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 Model Oversight teams work closely with the departments responsible for developing and maintaining models (Modelling Data, Risk Modelling, Model Validation), implementing the models (several GRIDs), the business lines using the models deployed and supervising authorities such as Internal Audit and DNB/ECB. All subject matter experts you will work closely together with affiliated departments including the (Non-) Financial and business grids and Operational Risk Management & Control to ensure a proper model landscape and use of models. The team creates aggregated reports on credit risk model related matters and shares these with senior management such as MT Credit Risk, Group Risk Committee (GRC), Methodology Acceptance Group (MAG), as well as with other key 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.
