Compliance Officer (Filled)

Team and organisation 

Managing compliance risk and complying with bank relevant applicable laws, regulations and standards in both personal and business conduct is the responsibility of every employee within the organisation. Compliance supports management and employees in these tasks. Management is responsible for identifying and communicating compliance requirements that each employee must fulfil in day-to-day business activities. Compliance provides the necessary assistance and advice.
The Head of Compliance & Regulatory Affairs and Compliance team are based in The Hague and designated Local Compliance Officers (LCO). The Compliance & Regulatory Affairs function operates as separate independent Business Unit (BU). This BU is part of the SBU Risk, Legal, Compliance and CSR (RLCC), and the Head of Compliance & Regulatory Affairs reports directly to the Chief Risk Officer and the Managing Board.
Key focus of Compliance is the 3 lines of defence model: to advise on and manage/remediate compliance risk & conduct matters at strategic-, transaction- and personal level, to monitor and control compliance risks within the agreed policy and control frameworks, to ensure our frameworks and policies remain up to date and to train & educate all staff on an ongoing basis to ensure appropriate and efficient compliance risk management across our organisation.
The  team consists of around 15 FTEs and consists of a Compliance team, a Regulatory Affairs team and a Project & Strategy Office. The team works on the basis of its Compliance & Regulatory Affairs Charter, the Compliance & Regulatory Affairs year planning – including monitoring plan – and a Target Operating Model.
