As an Internal Control Consultant you challenge and advise the Finance departments at home and abroad in identifying significant financial (reporting) risks and setting up adequate control measures to mitigate these risks. You also monitor the control measures to determine the operation of the Control Framework and to overcome any gaps at an early stage. In addition, you will conduct Theme Investigations in multidisciplinary teams to safeguard the laws and regulations in the field of IFRS, Prudential laws and regulations and Data Quality and report on this to management.

Are you familiar with strengthening Control Frameworks and do you enjoy learning more about (new) laws and regulations? What do you think about the next step? Work on your goals and develop both professionally and personally.

Your job

In this role, your finance colleagues advise and challenge in identifying financial (reporting) risks and implementing adequate control measures. To this end, you organize and lead workshops for Finance colleagues at home and abroad. Based on the standardized Control Framework, you implement the adequate controls and advise on how to record control evidence in an effective and efficient manner. In addition, you harmonize the Control Framework and create easily applicable templates. You are a sparring partner for the Finance departments in investigations by internal and external auditors and the regulators. In this role you will on average do a site visit twice a year at a foreign location.

You also monitor the functioning of the Finance-wide controls on a monthly basis and you feedback these findings to the managers of the various Finance departments. You then assess the root cause analysis and the action plan drawn up by the manager of the specific Finance department. You report the monitoring results to management on a monthly basis.

You also conduct theme and chain-wide research. These are done in multidisciplinary teams (Risk, ALM, Business) and are aimed at guaranteeing stable and reliable processes in which the correct application of the ABN AMRO Policies (Policy Adherence) is guaranteed. The Theme Investigations are mainly performed on new and significantly changed processes and reports. This includes topics such as IFRS 9, COREP, LCR, DGS, Levies and various loan tapes.

You report your findings as a result of your research and the resulting improvement proposals to management.
