What you can expect – enriching experiences that will last a lifetime

The Financial Services Risk Management (FSRM) team is at the heart of the financial services industry aims to foresee potential risks clients may face to ensure their best performance. Within our broad range of services, we distinguish between four tracks for graduate consultants: Governance & Regulatory, Financial Crime, Quantitative Analytics and Technology. In our personalized career design, you will work in one or two of the tracks, depending on background and interests, and will progress towards a more specialized role over the years.

  • The Governance & Regulatory track mainly focuses on governance, structure and internal control of financial institutions. As a consultant you will advise these organisations by analysing processes, identifying risks, designing control frameworks and assessing compliance under (local) laws and regulations (such as Solvency II and Basel IV). Analyses may subsequently lead to risk transformation, culture or strategy projects.
  • Financial Crime is increasingly important for financial institutions. You will focus on projects related to anti-money laundering (AML), Know Your Customer (KYC) and terrorism financing. You will work with a wide range of product offerings ranging from defining policies and procedures to leveraging new technologies like block chain and digital passports.
  • In the Quantitative Analytics track you will work with traditional quantitative finance models for pricing, credit risk, market risk and operational risk, but you will also focus on getting the most out of big data sets and machine learning applications. You will become an expert in validating, developing and programming models in languages like Python and ‘R’ and explain the results of your models to clients.
  • The Technology track focuses on helping our clients translate their business needs into technology accelerated solutions. We strive to combine our market, technical and business knowledge into tangible solutions, such as digital governance frameworks, developing platforms, developing real-time management information dashboards and applying analytics to allow for further business optimization.

What you can contribute – skills for shaping the future

  • You are in the last phase of your study or obtained a Master’s degree. We are open to applications from any background, varying from strong technical or quantitative studies to more finance/economic and regulatory focussed studies.
  • You have an interest in the financial sector and you follow the most recent developments in this sector.
  • You are eager to dive into new topics and to learn new skills, and you are interested on what’s on the horizon for the financial sector.
  • You have strong interpersonal skills: written, presentation and influencing.
  • You are fluent in English and Dutch, both verbal and in written.

What we are offering – an inspiring work environment

We offer a competitive remuneration package where you’ll be rewarded for your individual and team performance. Our comprehensive Total Rewards package includes support for flexible working and career development. At EY, your competencies and your areas of interest will determine your future, plus we offer you:
