With current challenges for both Danske Bank and the financial sector as a whole, the Risk and Regulatory team is expanding and need your help in our vision to be recognised as the most trusted financial partner.
Banking risk has become one of the most significant concerns for financial institution executives. New laws and regulations continue to emerge, such as conduct-risk, next-generation Bank Secrecy Act and Anti-Money Laundering (BSA/AML) risk, third & fourth-party (subcontractors) risk, etc. All banks differ in the way they operate, but one thing they have in common is risk & compliance. After the 2008 financial crisis, banks have faced an increase in the level of scrutiny from the government. The government requires innumerable statutory and regulatory compliance. Every financial organization requires a compliance & risk /regulatory management team to ensure the bank up to date regarding the requirements and complies with them.
Hence, in our COO & 1st Line Risk organisation, we have set an ambitious agenda for changing the risk picture and culture across Wealth Management – in all countries and legal entities.
Due to the ever-growing regulatory requirements, we are looking at expanding the team. We currently have teams in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Luxembourg.
We are looking for a senior project manager
As a Project Manager, you have a number of responsibilities in Wealth Management, but the primary is to drive and support projects and get the "product" out the door and implemented in business processes. You will support the business and ensure that we meet regulatory requirements. Your responsibility will focus on different regulatory projects. You will be also part of a great team working in an ever-changing environment, and represent Risk & Regulation in relevant business projects.
As Senior Project Manager these words will describe you:
- You need to know how to scope and structure a project
- To be ''man/woman in the middle''
- To keep good and open relationships with many stakeholders
- Structured way of working
Your goal is to deliver results to our customers and the Management Team of Wealth Management. You should be able to set your own clear goals, both short term and long term, and deliver towards the overall strategy.
Success in this requires working with high integrity and building trust among your colleagues, and that you appreciate working with many different contact interfaces. You are able to work both independently and in groups with colleagues where you work together on possible solutions.
You will report to the Head of Regulatory Projects, work closely together with business development and other group functions such as legal and compliance.Your profile:
To be able to do this, we believe you have a relevant university degree or other educational background, and 5+ years of experience from working in the financial sector – or project management experience. Experience with regulatory projects and implementation is an advantage but not a requirement.
You are a proactive and structured team player, but do not feel uncomfortable working alone. As our organisation is moving at a fast pace, it is important that you show flexibility and initiative in a fast-changing environment, while developing new ideas. You are able to establish relationships to the stakeholders and relevant project organisations across countries. The position requires fluency in English and preferably one Nordic language.
