Are you able to juggle a variety of tasks and work in a dynamic environment, liaising with senior management, (investment) specialists, auditors, and other stakeholders? Do you know what the challenges and complexities of an asset manager are? And are you able to translate these challenges into an effective internal control environment? Then you must seize this opportunity! For Robeco, we are looking for an Operational Risk Manager (Control & Assurance).

Over de functie

As Operational Risk Manager, you are responsible for maintaining the control framework, with a focus on IT. You are responsible for the improvement and structural monitoring of control testing performed by management. You create management reports of internal control. You are a pro-active advisor that levels with management whilst safeguarding alignment with the Robeco Framework.

Main tasks and responsibilities:

  • You (re)design risk policies and procedures
  • You create management reports on internal control
  • You develop IT internal control training and awareness activities
  • You coordinate Sox 404 and ISAE 3402 related activities

You will be part of a team of 10 ambitious and highly skilled risk specialists. Team members have distinct areas of expertise and responsibility and can work independently. At the same time, however, the breadth of Robeco’s activities and the relatively small size of the team require teamwork with team members functioning as each other’s backup. The ORM department is divided into three sub-teams: Risk Monitoring, Control & Assurance, and Incident Management. This vacancy is in the Control & Assurance team.
