In a nutshell

The credit risk management function facilitates the implementation of a sound risk management framework throughout Knab and further identifies, monitors, analyses, measures, manages and reports on all credit risks and forms a holistic view on all these risks. CRM also challenges and assists in the implementation of credit risk management measures by the business in order to ensure that the process and controls in place at the first line of defence are properly designed and effective.

The CRM team is involved in model running as well as model development; on a daily basis we monitor and challenge the credit risk position of Knab and we continually strive to do this even better. We do this using a variety of tooling, including mathematical models, and we look to enhance our team with a dedicated modelling and model management professional. A great opportunity to broaden and deepen your modelling skills while learning a lot about banks, financial services, the fintech ecosystem and (credit) risk management.

Your main responsibilities;

  • You will develop data driven models in RStudio and SQL;
  • You will develop, monitor, and improve models for measuring and managing our credit risk. This includes IFRS9, economic capital and stress testing models;
