Short Term Assignment – Financial Accounting & Regulatory Reporting Retail NL
About the assignment
ING’s strategy is centered around providing a best in class experience to its customers, aiming to empower people to stay a step ahead in life and business. Innovation is considered to be a core enabler to accomplish this mission, especially given the fast changing environment we live in today. From a Finance perspective this means being in control at all times of ING’s financials while making sure that ING continuously adapts to meet the changing and more data driven regulatory and statutory reporting requirements.
We are looking for an intern to help us in further automating our End-2-End cost allocation process, which has been set up to determine the cost price for the services that Domestic Bank Netherlands sells to other ING entities outside of the Netherlands. The design of the process ensures that we have a proper audit trail in place, which allows us to recover VAT in the Netherlands. You are able to oversee the end-to-end process, see the big picture and translate the requirements from various stakeholders in an efficient process/solution. You determine the impact of proposed changes, take timely decisions and implement those changes. In the End-2-End process , you eliminate manual work by building automatic data transfers (ETL) to feed relevant data from numerous systems to our data warehouse and further to the Cost Allocation software used. Strong collaboration, communication and stakeholder management skills are therefore a key to fulfilling this role successfully.
