Freelance Senior Project Manager Internal Control Framework


Wij hebben een interim opdracht in de bancaire sector vacant voor een Freelance Project Manager ICF. Start van de opdracht is begin november voor de duur van 5 a 6 maanden op basis van 32 a 40 uur per week.


The objective of the project is to improve the organizations control environment and the basic processes for risk management and internal control, in line with stakeholder expectations.

- The control environment includes the culture, values, and expectations that organizations put into place. All regulations mention ‘Risk culture’ as critical success factor. Values and behaviors related to risk management and internal control need to be made explicit. Accountabilities and responsibilities must be made explicit and included in job descriptions and performance reviews. The control environment also includes the governance structure. Building and embedding a mature system of internal control will require several iterations of the yearly risk-cycle through Business-as-Usual governance. The project is aimed at ‘setting the wheel in motion’ and handing over to regular governance (1st line accountability and 2nd line oversight) as soon as possible. The BAU governance must at the end of the project be capable of driving continuous improvement.

- Basic processes for risk management and internal control, supported by one central GRC tool. The Risk Department will define the minimum requirements and basic processes for risk management and internal control. First line must adhere to these requirements relating to Process and product management, Policy maintenance and reviewing adherence, Risk identification and assessment, implementing controls, Identifying key-controls and monitoring their performance, Registration and follow-up of risk events, Remediating actions and Reporting results. These processes are all in place at different levels of maturity.

- Our main stakeholders regarding risk management and internal control are our regulator DNB, shareholders and parties we provide services to, like the European Committee and Dutch  government. The organization is subject to many regulations, guidelines and contractual stipulations that require the organization to ‘manage risk’ and ‘stay in control’.
