Data Steward Regulatory Reporting

Zeist | Head Office

Banks have been affected by complex and comprehensive regulations in recent years. In addition, quality of and real-time access to data is increasingly important. The pace of technological development and innovation is accelerating, as is the need for data driven reporting, monitoring and control. Good, correct and complete data enable us to not only comply with regulation, but also become even more effective and efficient in steering, monitoring and improving our banking activities.

To support and sustain this development Triodos Group Finance is working on improving on data quality, automating its reporting processes, improving its analyses and its controls. Monitoring, validating and improving data quality from front-end systems all the way to actual financial- and regulatory reports has become a job in and of itself. A data steward is the linking pin between all parties involved as a guardian and key point of contact for resolving issues around data quality.

Do you enjoy working your way through data, looking for clues as to where data quality issues appear? Do you have a strong affinity for financial- or regulatory reporting? Are you comfortable in a data driven environment where cooperation between local branches and head office departments is key? Are you a team player, used to balancing working in an Agile Scrum environment with stringent, sometimes external, deadlines? Then you are the Data Steward we are looking for!

  • Interprete regulatory guidelines and translate these into data quality requirements, definitions and controls;
