Imagine… that you work in a dynamic and complex environment with continuous change where you contribute to the goals of Rabobank and can develop yourself professionally and as a person.
Finance & Risk Data (FRD) is an integral part of the CFO domain and is a key player that connects various stakeholders within Finance, Risk and IT in both the Netherlands and abroad.
The mission of FRD is to enable Rabobank to full it’s goals by providing trusted finance & risk data. We are therefore closely involved in the daily operations to ensure that the bank’s processes operate as intended and are both leading and participating in various major change programmes. These change programmes are all focussed on improving the bank’s IT landscape and related processes and are driven from business, efficiency and regulatory perspective. Making a difference
FRD is continuously recruiting for various data steward roles on different seniority levels (junior, medior, senior) for which you can be a strong candidate.
The Data Stewards within F&R Data acts as the conduit between IT and the business and/or accept accountability for data definition, data management process, and Data quality levels for specific data subject areas. Data stewardship involves managing the enterprise’s data assets in order to improve their reusability, accessibility, and quality. The role involves taking responsibility for data elements for their end-to-end usage across the enterprise. Data Steward does not involve just a single role but includes a network of personnel with accountabilities for ensuring that all aspects of an effective Data environment are being accomplished. It is an ongoing activity that requires competencies of all individuals within the Rabobank organization.
All Data Stewards within FRD will focus on the following areas: issue management & monitoring, projects, lineage, systems/chains/ domains, data definition & exchange, Data models, critical data elements & data quality requirements
Track data steward:
The Group Risk and Finance Datawarehouse (GRFD) has three different tracks (Asset and Liability Management, Credit and Finance) to serve the needs of different customer groups. As track data steward, your main responsibility is to make sure the datawarehouse is filled with harmonised, consistent and structural data that is linked to the Rabobank Group Business Glossary definitions. In order to achieve that you need to work together closely with the onboarding data steward to harmonise the data from all different sources. You need to cooperate with the customer to make sure the translation from Rabobank Group language to customer system’s language is done properly. Next to that, you need to make sure that your track’s data is aligned with that of the other tracks. Next to this change process, you have an important role in verifying and checking the productions runs of GRFD. You are the spider in the web. You have an important role in your chain from source to customer, but also have to align closely with the other GRFD tracks to deliver consistent, harmonised data.
