As a Business Controller, you are jointly responsible for shaping an effective and efficient 'first line of defence' for ABF within the 'three lines of defence' model in the field of operational risk. Within ABF, based on your expertise, you advise the business on operational risks, weaknesses in internal controls and related quality improvements in reports and documentation in accordance with statutory frameworks and requirements, and regulatory guidelines. You optimise the reliability of models and reports, and you shore up the control framework. You support the business by providing advice on those matters. Furthermore you support the part of the business in your area of attention by designing, monitoring, implementation and securing the1st line of defence. Within your area of attention, you have knowledge of risk and processes, the risk (model) framework of the bank. In addition, interacting with the various stakeholders, being ABF departments, Commercial Banking and second- and third-line parties (I&ORM, SIM and Audit.....), is part of the daily work. Futhermore, coordinating investigations and following up on results is an important part of the task package.
You are sometimes an expert, sometimes a helpline, sometimes a booster, connecting people with each other, but always the eyes and ears of the MT ABF regarding opreational risks. All with the aim of adequately managing compliance matters in order to monitor and further improve ABF's reputation inside and outside the bank. In doing so, you take into account customer interests and risks for the bank, aimed at optimising the performance of the ABF organisation.
