The Operational Risk Management (ORM) department resides within the Risk Management Department that reports directly to the CFO and acts independently of Robeco's commercial functions. ORM is responsible for the measurement and monitoring of non-financial risk. The ORM department currently employs 6 ambitious and highly skilled risk specialists. Team members have distinct areas of expertise and responsibility and are able to work independently. At the same time however the breadth of Robeco’s activities and the relatively small size of the team require teamwork with all team members functioning as each other’s backup.
A focus point of our Risk department currently is the evolution from operational risk to enterprise risk management, demanding a broader view on strategic, tactical and operational risks. We are looking for a risk manager with the ability to operate on (senior) management level and act as a sparring partner on key business topics. Furthermore we are looking for a hands on mentality and the ability to translate the strategic vision of the department into day to day action.
Robeco's departments, and ultimately the Executive Committee (ExCo), are responsible for managing risks resulting from their activities. ORM supports and facilitates the business in taking on this responsibility by a variety of activities:
In the execution of these activities ORM maintains strong relationships within the organization and cooperates with Compliance and Internal Audit.
