Co-worker Legal Operations on the Regulatory Process(36-40 h/wk)

Interested in driving and supporting Triodos’ Regulatory Change Management Process? The Triodos Legal Operations team is looking for reinforcement! We are looking for someone who focuses on monitoring and overseeing the implementation of Regulatory Changes within Triodos Bank Group.

This is a role on post-secundary vocational level (Dutch: MBO), in which a candidate needs to have basic legal knowledge and will partly work on monitoring the regulatory process, and besides that on supporting the Paralegals in the team. In this role one can grow towards a role of Paralegal, so we're not looking for experienced Legal Counsels, Lawyers or Paralegals!

In this role, you will address the challenges typically seen in Regulatory Change Management. The regulatory landscape is increasingly complex, ever-changing, and therefore requires a structural and effective management to be able to demonstrate compliance and being in control. This means:

  • Responsible for ensuring proper usage of tooling.
  • Contact with users; forward and prioritize maintenance requests.
  • Have a complete oversight of the status of Regulatory Changes organization wide.
  • Being able to report on status of implementations.

This part of the Legal Operations activities within Triodos Bank Group Legal coordinates, monitors, reviews, follows up and reports across the entire Regulatory Change Management Process (RCMP).

The Group Legal Department enables the Regulatory Change Committee (RCC) and the Executive Board to steer on priorities and capacity related to regulatory changes with the ultimate goal of being compliant and being able to demonstrate compliance with regulatory changes in a sustainable and effective manner.

Next to your responsibilities related to Regulatory Change Management, you are a member of the Legal Operations activity as part of the Group Legal Department, together with two colleagues. Your tasks will also relate to the maintenance of the Group Legal intranet environment, as well as supporting the Group Legal Document Management System and other Legal applications we use.

This is a role where you can experience the inner workings and dynamics of the Regulatory Change Management Process including the challenging environment of technical legal support possibilities, all the while bringing your professional skillset to the next level.

If you enjoy working in a continuously changing environment, you love organizing and have a drive to be connected to legal IT possibilities and developments, this role is perfect for you.
