We are looking for a new colleague who has the motivation and skills to play an important role in the Credit Risk Model Validation (CRMV) team, a part of the Model Risk Management (MRM) department.

Currently, the 16 people in CRMV are responsible for credit risk models (LGD, PD, CF), IFRS9 and all credit decision models, but MRM covers all model areas in Danske Bank. MRM provides a lot of opportunities for both personal and professional development.

  • Having concluded, you will report and present your findings together with colleagues to relevant stakeholders, including senior management, business units and the Danish FSA (the regulatory supervisor of Danske Bank Group)
  • Gaining experience you will provide input to the validation process to optimise this

About you:

  • University degree in a quantitative field (e.g. mathematics, physics, economics, engineering, statistics)
  • Minimum 2-3 years of programming experience with analytical tools such as R, Python or SQL
  • Previous experience with validation or development of any models is an advantage
