Wat we bieden

Temporary assistance necessary due to increased workload on Global Control Room and PAD Office side (system roll-out having caused a lot of attention on the topics with a significant number of clarifications, queries and requests for training; thus creating a monitoring backlog). In anticipation of subsequent systems roll-outs, we request for a temporary support to make sure that BaU can be maintained without creation of backlog, in the period of increased system implementation requirement.


Je werkomgeving

Are you interested in or have knowledge of the world of financial products, Investment Banking and Corporate Finance? Do you have experience in or are you interested in a career in Compliance and Risk Management? The role of Personal Account Dealing (PAD) Compliance Officer may just be what you are looking for.


The Global PAD Office is a key Compliance function with a mandate to ensure that transactions in financial instruments executed by our client for their personal investment account/s are conducted in compliance with applicable laws and regulations relating to Market Abuse and that conflicts of interest related thereto are avoided or managed appropriately. The function is also responsible for provision of advice, implementation of policies and/or controls, development/provision of training and oversight of operational processes relating to Personal Account Dealing.


The Global Control Room (GCR) is another function within the compliance department that acts as a central clearing house for deal-related Conflicts of Interest within and across the various business lines of the bank globally, in order to mitigate regulatory and reputational risks. The GCR also assists the business in managing the flow of Inside Information and preserving the integrity of the Bank’s information barriers and Chinese Wall.


Since both functions are very much related, PAD Officer will as part of the role also perform Control Room duties when necessary.
