Data Governance & Control Expert

At a glance

Do you want to be part of the Data Revolution in the banking industry? Do you have a strong passion for data and do you agree that data is at the core of creating value for customers? Does working in a complex environment energize you? Then come help us unlock the power of data at the Central Data Office (CDO) of ABN AMRO!


You help realise the delivery of the ABN AMRO strategy: a Personal Bank in a Digital Age. You ensure that the entire bank follows the correct route towards a fully data driven organisation. From shaping new concepts to designing and guiding data management initiatives. You are able to quickly submerge yourself in a brand-new initiative, shape, socialise and ensure it is properly anchored for successful execution.

Your job

As Data Governance & Control Expert, your job is to set up and continuously improve the Data Performance & Control Management framework to create insights in and steer towards data and business objectives. The framework enables the organisation to get insights in the Data Execution by pinpointing the right levers and thereby investments to further accelerate. In doing so, you bring the mentality to the organisation: “what gets measured gets done!”.


The results you contribute to:

  1. Operationalise the current Data Performance & Control Management framework across the bank – to enable group-wide steering up to Executive Board and Supervisory Board level;
  2. Get the organisation equipped to make use of the performance framework to drive informed decision making;
  3. Deliver an improved performance framework for 2025 (i.e., topical set of data KPIs to steer on) in alignment with Data Strategy objectives and external developments.


Furthermore, you are an active contributor to the overall team responsibilities:

  • Designing and driving processes to formalise data management artifacts such as standards and guidelines;
  • Providing expert guidance and support in adopting data management artefacts;
  • Controlling adherence to the data management artefacts;
  • Running the corporate governance Data Committee;
  • Driving awareness of data governance.


This role requires switching context quickly, being action oriented while having strong conceptual capabilities with an understanding of data governance and management, risk management and foremost you are able to inspire stakeholders to take action.

Working environment

You operate in the following organisation:

  • You are part of the Central Data Office – Data Governance – Governance & Control department
  • You interact with other department in the Central Data Office to align on performance reporting
  • You interact with Data Domains to implement the Data Performance Management framework
  • You interact with stakeholders throughout the bank to strengthen alignment with bank-wide (performance) initiatives (like Objective Key Results framework, Key Risk Indicator steering elements, remuneration structure)

Next to your day-to-day work, there is room to think about the future of data and thereby determine the agenda for data in the bank. We do so in an open and transparent way of working where your opinion is valued and dialogue is encouraged. The team is diverse with regards to culture, experience and age. The atmosphere is lively and informal, closely monitoring a safe environment where everyone is able to share their thoughts, feelings and worries. It is normal to make mistakes and we aim to help each other grow better as learning is one of our main focuses.

The team you become part of is in constant collaboration with all business lines, international branches and subsidiaries of the bank. We all work together at the frontier of the largest data revolution in the banking industry and with the core value-assets of the organization.

Your profile

  • Bachelor or Master’s degree in Data Management, Data Governance, or a related field preferred (like Risk Management)
  • Result-oriented
  • Data-driven mentality and experience
  • Experience in driving KPI definitions & target setting processes
  • Experience in data governance, data management, or related roles (you are familiar with DAMA DMBOK, Data Mesh, BCBS239, etc.)
  • Understanding of the way of working with 3 lines of defense
  • Good communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to influence and engage stakeholders across departments and disciplines
  • Affinity with dashboards

If you do not meet all the above requirements, but have a strong drive to succeed, we are motivating you to send your application.
