You ensure that the implementation of the Data Strategy of ABN AMRO runs smoothly by managing the multi-disciplinary team that is responsible for the day-to-day steering of the Data Joint Master Plan, one of the 23 Themes in the ABN AMRO change bank portfolio.

Some examples of your responsibilities:

Working Environment

As Head of CADM Oversight, you become part of the core team responsible for overseeing the execution of the Data Strategy of ABN AMRO which is one of the 23 themes of our ‘one bank’ change portfolio. In this new, growing team of professionals, we work on a daily basis to ensure that we remain on track with our ambition to unlock the power of data. We do so in an open and transparent way of working. The team is diverse with regards to culture, experiences and age. The atmosphere is lively and informal, and the environment is safe. It is normal to make mistakes as long as everyone is honest about it and learns from them. In your day-to-day work you will play a leading role in ensuring both the Team and the Theme runs smoothly by ensuring up-to-date information is available within and outside the theme. Next to your day-to-day work, there is room to design, create and implement new processes especially when you are the one who is suggesting the change for the better! The team you become part of is in constant collaboration with all business lines, international branches and subsidiaries of the bank. We all work together at the frontier of the largest data revolution in the banking industry and with the core value-assets of the organization.

This is reflected by your eagerness to guide and steer your team towards the best results. In connecting stakeholders, building bridges and collaborating across silos you are at your best. While engaging with various different stakeholders, and mobilizing them through difficult transitions, you are able to keep an holistic view, allowing you to easily translate what you see into concrete actions. You know how to handle conversations on various management levels, and know what information you should present and how, depending on the stakeholder groups you are dealing with.
