Legal Counsel Contracting

At a glance

Are you the legal professional capable of keeping financial markets safe? While elegantly combining a firm stance with excellent client service? We can’t wait to meet you. ABN AMRO Clearing Bank (AACB) is a top three player in clearing globally. We are ambitious and customer oriented, striving to provide the best integrated service package for our professional clients. In the role of Legal Counsel Contracting you will actually make a difference in the pursuit of our goals.

Your job

The Contracting Unit is responsible for any and all agreements entered into between AACB and its clients. This concerns our master clearing contracts, as well as for example credit agreements, security documents, additional service agreements and guarantees. First of all, you will be negotiating these agreements with our (prospective) clients and/or their lawyers. In doing so you will utilise your outstanding legal expertise and drafting skills while granted the opportunity to learn about clearing, trading and financial markets on an ongoing basis. Second, your pragmatic approach is very much valued when advising internally on the contents of legal documentation, as well as with a view to the contracting processes. In addition to handling clients’ and internal queries, the Contracting Unit oversees and advises on the contracting lifecycle, continuously working with other teams to improve and automate. Furthermore, you are expected to signal regulatory developments and initiate updates to the contracts or processes where required. In short, the Contracting Unit is the first point of contact for all matters relating to client agreements. In this role you are strongly encouraged to share your knowledge and connect with sparring partners across the various departments.

Work environment

You will be located at the AACB headquarters in Amsterdam as part of a small team within AACB’s Corporate Office. Moving with the times, we are happy to find a balance between working from the office and working from home. Since you will be working together with colleagues and clients from around the globe, English is the primary language.

What we offer

Joining AACB means working towards a meaningful goal, together with a wide group of people with different backgrounds and different ideas. We look forward to welcoming your experiences and personal perspectives as well. The combination of flexibility and responsibility in this role grants you the opportunity to set priorities and choose your own focus in improving the team’s and AACB’s services. We are happy for you to take the lead in relevant projects. The organisation will inspire you to keep improving your knowledge and skills, which we facilitate by broad educational possibilities
Salary indication Eur 65k - 90k all in (incl. benefit budget) based on a 40 hour work week (36 is also possible). Depending on the potential, knowledge and experience you bring to the table, a salary scale will be set.

Your profile

We are looking for a legal professional with thorough knowledge of the law and legal practices, while also interested in financial markets. Our ideal candidate combines strong communicative and analytical skills with a pragmatic attitude. In short, the position requires the following:

  • Master’s degree in Dutch private law, 5-10 years of relevant working experience
  • Specialisation in financial law, contract law and/or securities law is preferred
  • Fluent in English and Dutch
  • Excellent communicative skills, verbally as well as in writing
  • A good eye for detail
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills


AACB is committed to fostering an inclusive environment. We believe we are bettered by all forms of diversity and take pride in working with talent from every walk of life. For more information about this position please contact Maryse Wulf by e-mail:
