Deputy Head Legal

You are the new Deputy Head of the Regulatory Office within the Legal Department.

The Regulatory Office brings prudential expertise and a deep bank-wide network and a sound understanding of the bank’s business under one roof. It also manages the relationship with ABN AMRO’s key regulators, the ECB and the Dutch central bank (DNB). It advises on supervisory processes and provides support around onsite inspections.

Je werk

Together with the team head, you manage the Regulatory Office (a team of 20 FTE). You act and decide as a leadership team. You provide oversight and direction to other team members. You coach, mentor and help develop them, including providing career development planning and opportunities. You provide an overall context and framework to encourage team member contribution which includes goal setting and feedback.

You report to the Head of the Regulatory Office (Erik de Gunst), who reports to the bank’s General Counsel & Company Secretary (Hanneke Dorsman).

Currently, the Regulatory Office comprises three sub-teams: (1) Regulatory Oversight, (2) Prudential Expertise and (3) the ECB/DNB Coordination Desk. Further roles are being developed around (strengthening) supervisory relations, including briefing of senior management and board members and stronger onsite inspections support.

You will take on an active role in ensuring that the Regulatory Office delivers on its remit, which include:

  • Monitoring follow-up to supervisory findings, inquiries, quality assurances etc. and report to the Group Regulatory Committee (RC) on timely execution of action plans, monitoring the progress of (the elements of) the regulatory response process and escalate impediments for timely compliance to the RC.
  • Maintaining a strong network across ABN AMRO and continuously looking for ways to expand and deepen this also taking into account the agile way of working/grid structure adopted by ABN AMRO; good relationships within the organisation are key to full and timely implementation of new legislation and go hand-in-hand with raising regulatory awareness.
  • Scanning the horizon for shifts in the regulatory landscape and supervisory outlook and anticipating how this will affect the bank.
  • Day-to-day managing of the relationship with the ECB and DNB, being part of key discussions with the regulators with regard to ongoing supervision, onsite inspections, deep-dives, changes in regulatory/supervisory interpretations. This extends to briefing senior management and board members ahead of supervisory meetings.
  • Advising on prudential (supervision and resolution) issues (legal interpretative reasoning and judgement), also by directly participating in projects with strong prudential components. Working closely together with prudential and regulatory experts elsewhere within the bank.

Je werkomgeving

The Regulatory Office was created to help manage ABN AMRO’s response to global regulatory reform and advises on supervisory and regulatory issues. The Regulatory Office works closely with the rest of the Legal Department, Risk, Compliance and Finance functions, and each line of business, to help ABN AMRO navigate through increased regulatory focus and change.

Je profiel

  • You should have a Master’s degree or equivalent and at least 10 years’ relevant work experience, with a minimum of 3 years of leadership experience in management or supervising positions.
  • A seasoned professional with deep experience in one or more senior regulatory related roles.
  • Extensive experience of interacting with regulators (at a senior level) would be an advantage.
  • Previous experience of preparing and ‘mentoring’ senior management including board members, prior to meetings with regulator(s).
  • Experience working at a regulator would be an advantage.
  • Broad knowledge of regulatory risks and industry good practices in managing them, especially in the context of managing regulatory relationships.
  • Broad knowledge of financial services regulation as relevant to ABN AMRO’s businesses.
  • Extensive knowledge of the ABN AMRO group structure, its business and understanding of ABN AMRO’s corporate culture would be an advantage.
  • Excellent communicator with strong inter-personal and influencing skills.
  • Ability to adopt a tailored and effective communication style to regulators at all levels of seniority and varying levels of management.
