Chapter Lead COORF Accounting Tribe

The Accounting Tribe sits right at the heart of the Bank’s complexity. We translate our rather complex primarily Wholesale Banking business activities into financial records in line with the latest regulatory and tax requirements. Demand therefore can come from two angles [1] new or changed products/business lines and 2] Tax Authorities and Central Banks. Both angles trigger / urge us to reconsider and to adjust the way we account for.

In a nutshell for this role it is crucial to maintain strong pro-active relations with business stakeholders on the one hand and key internal and external specialists from a tax and regulatory perspective on the other hand. Strong affinity with accounting /controlling is a non-negotiable pre-requisite. You will be steering, nurturing and maturing the craftmanship of a team of product accounting specialists.

As a leader you will also help the PO’s in setting the right priorities and in achieving their deliveries. Furthermore, it is key that you are able to use your innovative mindset to come up with ideas to further enhance our accounting practice.

You will take up responsibility, steer strategy and ensure execution based on facts and data. You have the managerial courage to question and take decisions.
