...that we’ll give you the opportunity to put your modelling skills to work at the very core of Rabobank’s business. As a Capital Modelling Expert, you will take ownership of model development and develop solutions that satisfy our customers and ambitions. You can make a difference by leading our modelling landscape into the future!
Making a difference
Capital Modelling is at the core of our bank. The models we develop are key to our internal capital estimates leading to a broad interest from various stakeholders throughout the bank including senior management.
You will have the opportunity to work with complex models and risk metrics, developing solutions that impact millions of customers. Capital modelling includes for example modelling of risks in real estate portfolios, concentration risk effects in our entire loan book, FX risk in net investments and AMA operational risk. Next to that our Macro Economic Scenario model is a key input for both IFRS9 and Stress Testing and is central in helping to assess risks in current and new affairs such as Climate and Environmental Risk.
You work together with other modellers and interact with a broad field of stakeholders outside our department to ensure proper embedding of the models in the organization and to be aware of market and balance sheet developments. You do thorough analyses, and account for your work through comprehensive documentation and clear communication. Moreover, a transition towards cloud computing for all Economic Capital models is expected in the coming years.
You’ll be on the front lines, presenting your own theories and taking your own initiatives to keep the bank moving forward. Representing the team internally and externally, e.g. in committees, boards or meetings with audit or regulator.
As a junior / medior / senior you are responsible for the coordination of larger projects, both for the direction in the project as well as well as the timelines on the project management side. You are comfortable making key decisions with minimum input and are able to present complex matter in a clear way to higher management, making sure a complete picture is being presented. You are pro-active in seeking efficiencies and identifying issues that transcend the current projects and serve as a coaching partner for more junior colleagues. Your technology stack consists of Python, Matlab, SQL and GIT, or comparable packages and programming languages.
